I have an hp nx9600 with a similar (or same) card, and ndisgen worked fine. I didn't modify rc.conf, but instead use kldload to load the module when I need it. Here's what I do: # kldunload /root/bcmwl5_sys.ko #dmesg ... ndis0: <Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN> mem 0xc8206000-0xc8207fff irq 17 at device 3.0 on pci11 ndis0: NDIS API version: 5.1 ndis0: Ethernet address: 00:90:4b:af:7f:68 What does dmesg tell you when you try to load the module? hth... don > > Atanas > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- Don Hinton <don.hinton at vanderbilt.edu> tel: 615.480.5667 ISIS, Vanderbilt University skype: donhinton http://people.vanderbilt.edu/~don.hinton/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
