Hello gurus,

Can someone help me setting up my wireless device on my laptop
im on 6.1R, I tried to do as instructed on handbook, but no luck.
My laptop suppose to be the client, and i have a netgear wireless modem router up and running.
How to make the freebsd see the router have the ip, and make the device up?

from dmesg
ugen0: Broadcom Corp HP Integrated Module

The following is the output of ifconfig -a
# ifconfig -a

fwe0: flags=108943<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,NEEDSGIANT> mtu 1500
       options=8<VLAN_MTU>
       inet6 fe80::603f:2ff:fe6c:4184%fwe0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
       inet 0.0.0.0 netmask 0xff000000 broadcast 255.255.255.255
       ether 62:3f:02:6c:41:84
       ch 1 dma 0
fxp0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
       options=8<VLAN_MTU>
       inet6 fe80::216:d4ff:fe01:617e%fxp0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2
       inet 192.168.0.14 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255
       ether 00:16:d4:01:61:7e
       media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
       status: active
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384
       inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
       inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3
       inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000

the following is in /etc/rc.conf  (i think there is something wrong)

ifconfig_fwe0="DHCP"
dhcp_program="/sbin/dhclient"
ddhcp_flags=""

the following is compiles in the kernel
wlan
an
awi
ral
wi
wlan_wep
wlan_ccmp
wlan_tkip
wl As i have been told that fwe0 is not the wireless device, then how to show it up?
compiled the kernel to some modifications as i wrote here, but no luck,
Will kindly someone help me, as im new to wireless and bsd.
