You can enter loader and from there unload bcmwl5_sys, type: unload bcmwl5_sys. loader is started one step before kernel. Before ever changing loader.conf you really should test it via kldload(1) and report any ndis issues via PR. >From where you fetched drivers and for what windows version? -- Paul _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
