I've got an RTL8180 that I have compiled a module for using ndisgen. The
first time I installed FreeBSD, this worked fine, with exactly the same
version of the driver, and I was able to use it, however, the computer
power ran out during a portupgrade, rendering /usr unuseable. Now that I
have reinstalled FreeBSD from scratch (wiping the partition and
reinstalling from the same FreeBSD6.0-RELEASE cds), I have recompiled
the module using ndisgen again, and kldload rtl8180_sys loads the module
(with ndis and if_ndis loaded), without any errors output. An ifconfig
shows ndis0, including the correct MAC Address.

Now, when I try to set the ssid with ifconfig ndis0 ssid wingot (the
name of my home network), and then run another ifconfig, ndis0 still has
an SSID of only "". I have also reinstalled the system another time
since, and the same issue is occuring.

If anyone knows of a non-ndis version of this driver already available
for FreeBSD (I know NetBSD has one), can they please point me in the
correct direction, but otherwise, does anyone have any idea why the
wireless device will not accept an SSID with ifconfig? No output is
returned at any stage indicating any issues, and I have looked in
/var/log and cannot find any problems logged.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
