    This is a work in progress project and there is still a lot do.

    If you want to get involved in OpenBSD wifi development, you could get started by helping us with this effort.

    Eventually, this driver could support wireless on the rpi3 and some macbooks.

      Thanks, stsp, for all your help getting me into the wireless world! And for reaping all that karma now. ;)

      This driver might be an easier way of getting into OpenBSD wifi development, since all the wifi madness is done in the firmware, so one doesn’t have to understand everything right away.

        Will it support BCM43225?

          Nope, that’s a SoftMAC chip. The problem with these chips is that the Linux driver code is too insane and large by OpenBSD’s standards: https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmsmac/phy/phy_n.c

          With FullMAC, this junk is hidden in the firmware so we don’t have to maintain it.

            30k LOC, no further questions :)

            Are these ones the ones on macbook/macbook airs?
