Hi, After battling PPPoE for a day, because HISADDR is a literal and not a value, in addition to all routes needing to be cleared before ppp starts, we finally got a FreeBSD natbox wireless access point and can get rid of the linksys.
There's only one problem left to tackle and my lack of wireless network knowledge comes to play. Everything works, except wireless hosts cannot connect to eachother. The only can connect to the wireless host. The only reference I found to this is an old samag article: http://www.samag.com/documents/s=7121/sam0205a/sam0205a.htm "# BSS mode, meaning clients must associate with an access point, # and cannot directly connect to one another." This however deals with wi(4) rather then our ath and it also offers no background or solution to letting them interconnect (although I suspect enabling IBSS is the key?). I followed: http://www.freebsdmall.com/~loader/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/wireless/article.html to set this up (and I don't understand why the hostap bits are stripped from this article in the handbook). Relevant config bits: ifconfig_ath0="inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid MYSSID wepmode on weptxkey 1 wepkey 1:0x0123456789 mode 11g mediaopt hostap" ifconfig_ath0_alias0="inet 192.168.1.51 netmask 0xffffffff" # for DNS server # pciconf -lv|grep -A4 ^ath [EMAIL PROTECTED]:10:0: class=0x020000 card=0x7057144f chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.' device = 'AR5212, AR5213 802.11a/b/g Wireless Adapter' class = network subclass = ethernet So what's the trick to allow/facilitate connections between two clients? -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
