Since I need various wifi configurations on my laptop, I use startup scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. They are turned off (that is, they don't end in '.sh') so that I can choose the configuration manually after bootup. The text to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off is below. It assumes that the laptop is a client to an access point that uses WEP. Replace the ssidname and wepkey in the start section. Change 'wi0' to the interface device, if needed. If you want it to start at bootup, rename the file without the '.off'. #!/bin/sh # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off # Configure wireless interface using DHCP case $1 in start) ifconfig wi0 ssid "ssidname" authmode "shared" nwkey 0xaaaaaaaaaa dhclient wi0 echo ' wi0' ;; stop) kill `cat /var/run/dhclient.pid` ifconfig wi0 remove echo ' wi0 removed' ;; status) ifconfig wi0 ;; *) echo 'usage: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/wi0.dhcp.sh.off [start|stop|status]' ;; esac _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
