Default intel 3945abg wireless

I've already posted this in general, but realize that this may be the more appropriate place for this question.

this is a clean and fresh install of pc-bsd 1.4 on a lenovo R60e. It has the intel 3945ABG wireless network card. Unfortunately, it is not detected or working for one reason or another.

ifconfig output:
inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
ether 00:16:d3:2f:6c:51
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
status: active
pflog0: flags=0<> mtu 33208
pfsync0: flags=0<> mtu 2020
syncpeer: maxupd: 128
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet netmask 0xff000000

************************************************** ***********

maybe this helps. Anyhow, first day with pc-bsd ever and it would be a shame having come this far not to be able to get it working on this laptop. Otherwise, it worked out of the box with Ubuntu and i'll go back to that if i have to.

thank you in advance

Alas, the driver for your card isn't available in FreeBSD 6.x yet. I tried building the driver, but it failed.

The name of the driver is wpi. I would keep an eye on it until it has been backported to 6.
