I wanted to access a WPA-PSK network with my laptop. I booted up FreeBSD 6.2. I already had a D-Link WNA2330 card inserted in the slot at boot up. The ath driver recognized the card:
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0x88000000-0x8800ffff irq 11 at device 0,0 on cardbus0 ath0: Ethernet address: 00:15:e9:d9:77:13 ath0: mac 7,9 phy 4,5 radio 5,6 I configured /etc/wpa_supplicant and added a line to /etc/rc.conf to configure the interface to use DHCP. Then I issued /etc/rc.d/netif start. What I got was a card that was associated and properly configured but that could not negotiate an address or pass traffic. After several iterations of ifconfig ath0, I finally removed the card and reinserted the card. Then and only then did the /etc/rc.d/netif start result in an associated and DHCP configured NIC. ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 2 (2417 Mhz, flags 0xe0 hal flags 0xc0) ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0x88000000-0x8800ffff irq 11 at device 0,0 on cardbus0 ath0: Ethernet address: 00:15:e9:d9:77:13 ath0: mac 7,9 phy 4,5 radio 5,6 Has anyone seen this before - where the card is recognized by the driver and the card can associate with the network but the WPA fails until the card is removed and reinserted? Laptop is a Thinkpad T21. OS is FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #0 Kernel has the following compiled in: device wlan device wlan_wep device wlan_ccmp device wlan_tkip device wi device ath device ath_hal device ath_rate_sample IPFW is compiled in and was set open.
