I've got a really annoying problem with my wireless connection from my
FreeBSD Gateway to the WAN-router (Yes, the gateway connect to the WAN
via wireless :(. ). The setup works fine until the carrier is lost
(maybe weak signal), then it refuses to pick the connection up again,
resulting in a non-working gateway. Then I have to flush ipfw, dhclient
ath0 and restart natd to make it all work again. If I keep the
connection busy (i.e. ping -i 5 gateway), it all works fine, no carrier
is lost. Shouldn't it be possible for the setup to regain carrier
automatically when it's lost?
natd_flags="-f /etc/natd.conf" (same_ports yes - use_sockets yes -
ifconfig_ath0="ssid ZyXEL DHCP wepmode on weptxkey 1 wepkey 1:0x....."
ipfw list: (not safe, just temporary)
50 divert 8668 ip from any to any via ath0
100 allow ip from any to any
The ath0 card is a D-Link DWL-G520
The router is a ZyXEL P-320 (no turbomode etc)
As I said, the setup works flawless util the carrier is lost and ath0 is
unable to regain carrier. I've tried freebsd-mobile, but it seems
