Hi,
I have BCM 43224 WiFi card on my Dell-E6410 notebook But not detected when
I run ifconfig!
# dmesg | grep BCM43224

"Broadcom BCM43224" rev 0x01 at pci3 dev 0 function 0 not configured
"Broadcom BCM43224" rev 0x01 at pci3 dev 0 function 0 not configured

Is that possible to informing the OpenBSD developers that use its driver on
the next release?

Sorry but merely asking developers for feature X in release+1 is not the
way to go.

IIUC BCM43* nics could have been supported if development efforts hadn't
been killed by licensing issues.  I doubt there are developers who want
to work on this anymore.

Please follow Stefan's advices in

You're probably referring to the b43 Linux driver story from years ago.
Our bwi(4) has nothing to do with that. It was ported from DragonflyBSD.

I believe the BCM43224 chip could be supported by bwn(4) in FreeBSD and
definitely brcmsmac in Linux, both of which have a suitable licence.
Of course, there's a non-trivial amount of work involved in porting either
of these drivers over. Volunteers, please sign in blood here: ______________

I was thinking about bcw(4).

Not sure about bwn(4), according to their online manpage, but indeed the
license of the linux driver seems appropriate[1].

That was an interesting experience. I hope to never repeat it.
