Thanks Jerry....

Personally I think that the solution is simply $$$$...   and it is not a
BIG $$$

Here In Brazil , I am raising a company that sells FreeBSD solution, if
I 
spend about US$1000/month for R&D on FreeBSD , by putting a bid on some
projects,
(wireless drivers, network manager...), I think in few time we will have
the network drivers,
running.  US$1000/month is about 12.000/year..   I bet there is a lot of
people willing
to earn that money.
The code would be donated to the FreeBSD community.  It is cheaper than
hire
a full time programmer. (and have the job done in few time too).
