I would like NetBSD supported a Realtek 8172 wifi card - seen in dmesg as:

vendor 0x10ec product 0x8172 (miscellaneous network, revision 0x10) at pci2 dev 0 function 0 not configured

On Linux it needs RTL8192SE driver, but it doesn't seem that any *BSD supports it at the moment (and no clue there is a work on it).

It is found on my Lenovo ThinkPad Edge notebook.
