Thanks simon, but I already decided to change to an atheros card, too many problems with this one plus no one is working for the betterment of this driver any more.

Subject: RE: Ralink wireless driver help


FREEBSD 6.1 RELEASE

I just bought a wireless pci card, CNet CWP-854, and according to the
ral
man page this card is supported.  I compiled a new kernel with 'device

wlan' and 'device ral' as per the ral man page, it compile without any
errors, but I can't get it to work.

If I run: 'ifconfig ral0 inet 192.168.1.42 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid
04Z412560727'
I get this: 'ifconfig: interface ral0 does not exist'
I run this: 'kldload if_ral'
I get this: 'kldload: can't load if_ral: File exists'

Hi,

I'm using an identical card under 6.0-stable without any problems.

Within my kernel I have:

device          wlan
device          an
device          awi
device          ral
device          wi

It might be a silly question - but have you installed the new kernel?


If you have compiled and installed the kernel with support for the
device
you shouldn't need to load any modules for it.

My kldstat shows:

Id Refs Address    Size     Name
1   13 0xc0400000 55e1d8   kernel
2    1 0xc095f000 91f0     bridge.ko
3    1 0xc0969000 2d90     wlan_wep.ko
4    1 0xc096c000 41c4     wlan_tkip.ko
5    1 0xc0971000 6fe4     wlan_ccmp.ko
6    1 0xc0978000 1bac     wlan_xauth.ko
7    1 0xc097a000 2ef4     wlan_acl.ko
8    1 0xc2655000 b000     ntfs.ko

Although I've never got it working properly with wpa/tkip and have
recently
replaced it with a linksys wrt54g. Worked fine for ages with
unencrypted/wep.

I run this: 'pciconf -lv'
I get this: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:2:0: class=0x028000 card=0x25611814
chip=0x03011814
rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
              vendor   = 'Ralink Technology, Corp'

I get:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:14:0: class=0x028000 card=0x00201371 chip=0x02011814 rev=0x01
hdr=0x00
   vendor   = 'Ralink Technology, Corp'
   device   = 'Ralink RT2500 802.11 CardBus Reference Card'
   class    = network


HTH,

Simon
