bwfm bcm43569

BABUT
i know that wifi adapters never worked in obsd(excluding those
adapters for which drivers were written by vendors), but i found one
that shows signs of life in 11n(11ac 2t2r supported by chip). it can
be bought anywhere where there are samsung tv. moreover it even works
in hostap mode(unlike the buggy athn).    
but without a ton of bugs not done:
bwfm0: could not read register: TIMEOUT
bwfm0: could not open rx pipe: IN_USE
bwfm0: could not init bus
bwfm0: firmware did not start up
..and sometimes kernel panic on boot, but works would still!
meet https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Samsung_WCH730B
bwfm0 at uhub0 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0 "Broadcom BCMUSB 802.11 Wireless Adapter" rev 2.10/0.01 addr 2
photo without cover: http://pichost.org/images/2019/06/24/Untitled-138.jpg 
it is shown where to solder the wires for wifi. on the right through
two pins(ground is first) is bluetooth, but for obsd this does not
matter(thx theo).

Provide a dmesg before you rant.

first, urtwn doesn't support 11n. i have not checked but it is written there.
second, hostap mode is not supported.
third, the only one task that obsd can solve is to be a router.
nothing more but even this task obsd can not solve adequately. and for
this you need wifi support with hostap mode. if you have a device from
the china there is usually a mini-pcie only with usb interface. for
example https://aliexpress.com/item/Minisys-NUC-Celeron-J3160-4-4-Intel-i210AT-Nic-X86/32891699351.html
only two drivers fit- athn and bwfm, but i could not get athn to work witn TL-WN821N(r3,r5)

for what? but as you wish. if you want to see driver's error messages
or kernel panic just say it because they do not always appear. but we
both know it is a waste of time and it will not lead to anything.

Did you solder that yourself?  As long as nothing has changed, bwfm(4)
on USB worked fine with the one USB one that I had:  The official
raspberry Pi USB WiFi stick that they sold before they put the WiFi
chip onto the board itself.  I wouldn't blame that on the driver.
Did you try the stick with Linux?  If it works with Linux then maybe
it's my fault after all.

not me but i asked another man to find for me where the usb pins out.
i can not overpower myself and use monkey style os like a linux :\ so
i have not tested on linux. but if you care i will give you any
information you need

Babut,

You are not correct, OpenBSD is a full Unix/BSD implementation and can
do most anything BSD/Unix can.

I guess in the whole domain of general purpose functionality,
concurrent disk/filesystem IO performance would be OpenBSD's humblest
point today (due to not using block device multiqueueing and I get the
impression that the disk/IO subsystem is mostly not parallellized, for
some usecases also the 3GB buffer cap limit matters).

obsd do not have a reliable file system and nothing is being done in
this direction. the fact that disk operations are slow is not so
important for me(with the advent of ssd, this problem has ceased to be
relevant).
the hardware support is in a terrible state and relative situation is
getting worse(i am not even talking about the drivers but about all
the 802.11 subsystem which still does not know how to 11ac, although
during this time it is outdated. and i suspect theo will cut out the
802.11 subsystem soon because no 802.11- no problem. it is obsd
style).
obsd has never been strong on multitasking, but now they are trying to
make it worse(thank god that ht support still kept).
these disadvantages narrow the area where you can use obsd. your very
approach to evaluate the completeness of compliance with some
concept(as unix) is flawed. people do not use concepts in everyday
life, they use some opportunities. and it is necessary to adjust the
concept to what is demanded by people and not to limit opportunities
because of the concept. and although theo is wrong, obsd is his
brainchild and he has the right to kill him :\

ps: any fictional concepts is bullshit. there are only practical needs
and common sense

You’re always welcome to submit a patch for functionality you want.  It might not be accepted but your own use case would be covered.

Statements on the intentions of others, as the way you continue to do, is a sign of a troll.  Submit a patch and you’ll be a helpful troll, if such a thing exists.
