The ath(4) manpage says: NAME ath -- Atheros IEEE 802.11 wireless network driver SYNOPSIS To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device ath device ath_hal device ath_rate_sample device wlan Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): if_ath_load="YES" [...] You will also need the various wlan_xxx options you list above if you wish to use WPA and/or WEP. (Using WPA is strongly recommended.) -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
