Hi all. I have recently installed FreeBSD-7.1-RELEASE on my Compaq Evo laptop. It used to dualboot with windows xp and gentoo linux, but I decided to give FreeBSD a try instead, so now it dualboots with windows and FreeBSD. My biggest problem is connecting to the internet over the local wifi network. I am using a usb antenna, which uses the rum driver in FreeBSD. When using windows, the signal strength is low (I am located quite far from the access point), but works fine. I can connect to the network and get on the internet, no problem. Problem is when I start FreeBSD, I cannot get a signal, i.e. ifconfig always reports "no carrier". I can connect to the network with FreeBSD if I move closer to the AP, but it is impractical for me to do so.
Has anyone experienced anything similar, or know what could be causing it? Please let me know if you need more information. Hope you can help me. /lars _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
