Funny, I was about to buy one very similar, but I ended up not needing a
wireless card for my desktop as the cable was setup in my room.
Anyways, I tried looking around on bugs.opensolaris.org for anything
related to "rtw" (Actual module name) and "realtek" but apparently
there's not much on it. I can't seem to find any fix either, at least
not yet, Michael Li replied to this, it's with the device interrupts.
This is way to low-level for me to explain correctly, as this is really
not what I specialize in. In a nutshell though, something is lost in
translation, the device and pcmcia controller are not sending key data,
either correctly, or at all. Hence it cannot scan and probably wouldn't
associate if you tried forcing it. Again, don't call me an expert, I
mostly repeat what others have done, this stuff is usually NDA or
reverse engineered, and quite specialized to fix. I am wondering what
is up with the garbage ACPI debug info. doubtful this is the root cause.
