Yes, I think the current binary wireless driver is the biggest question
mark. However there is a ongoing project in linux to reverse engineer
the Broadcom drivers for wireless cards, , which indicates it applies to
the wrt54g circuit. This work would have to be ported to rtems.  I
didn't expect there to be a "drop-in" BSP for this, just a MIPS based
BSP that could be used as a reasonable starting reference like I have
done on two other RTEMS ports. Thanks for the input!
