Hi, I'm running FreeBSD 7.0 and have been having trouble getting a connection to my wireless access point with the ral driver. This is the contents of my /etc/rc.conf:
ifconfig_ral0="ssid myssid wepmode on weptxkey 1 wepkey <key here> bssid <ap bssid> DHCP" When I run 'dhclient ral0' to get the network parameters, it seems to be sending out several DHCPDISCOVER messages with no offers. I'll rarely get an offer and send out the request. I have txpower set to 50 (highest value accepted by this driver I guess) and this is what a typical scan shows; # ifconfig ral0 scan SSID BSSID CHAN RATE S:N INT CAPS <myssid> <bssid> 11 54M -91:-95 100EP WME # ifconfig ral0 ral0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500 ether <addr> media: IEEE802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (OFDM/54Mbps) status:associated ssid <myssid> channel 11 (2462 Mhz 11g) bssid <...> authmode OPEN privacy ON deftxkey 1 wepkey 1:<...> bmiss 7 scanvalid 60 bgscan bgscanintvl 300 bgscanidle 250 roam:rssi11g roam:rate11g 5 protmode CTS FWIW, I have this same wireless card on several of my windows machines and it seems to be working flawlessly :( _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
