title="Convert a Wi-Fi driver to the new Wi-Fi stack"




The NetBSD Wi-Fi stack is being reworked to support newer protocols, higher speeds,
and fine-grained locking using code from FreeBSD.  As part of this work, all existing
NetBSD Wi-Fi drivers need to be reworked to the new Wi-Fi code base.

Successful completion of this project requires you to have access to hardware
that is already supported by NetBSD but not yet converted. See the
[[Driver state matrix]] for a list of devices to convert. Many older devices
can be found cheap on sites like eBay.
