Trying to set-up wireless internet access through a Belkin FSD6020 ver.2 wireless card has proved less than useful. Seeing that this isn't on the supported hardware list I had some fun unpacking .cab files from their distribution cdroms to attempt to wrap this using ndisgen.
All seemed to go well as far as the utility itself is concerned, but I didn't get any messages (success or error) after running kldload ... I followed the instructions from the current FreeBSD handbook. >From looking at the dmesg maybe there's a problem with cbb2 that's blocking ndis? Can a guru help me? I really don't want to have to use Win98 on this machine any longer... what's left of my sanity is at stake. My conclusions: FreeBSD 7.0-BETA1.5 installs from CDROM, not much else to say. FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE didn't so that's at least something to be proud of.
