I have actually succeeded in making my 3945 work in 6.2 Release, but I
used the January 2007 version of the wpi driver

http://www.clearchain.com/~benjsc/download/20070125-wpi-freebsd.tar.gz

This only works on the release version and it breaks if you perform a
freebsd-update and recompile your kernel.
I have only tested basic features (i.e. no encryption of any kind) but
it worked ok.
>From what I've read the driver is in heavy development and will probably
go open for beta testing soon. I believe there will be a working
solution either included in 7, or something you can download and compile
yourself. Read more details here:
