I'm using a D-Link AirPlus Xtreme, got it from ebuyer.co.uk, but guess you can get it from ebuyer.com as well. Works fine, except: WEP doesn't work (when I gave the key I used with w2k and linux ifconfig did not accept it, because it were to short, if I added two random digits ifconfig accepted the key, but the router didn't as the key was not the proper key anymore. so I switched to access restriction by MAC address, which is not a problem as it is my home network. Another problem was that the card did not come up at boot time just by putting the ifconfig statements into /etc/rc.conf like ifconfig_ath0="inet 192.168.6.202 netmask 255.255.255.0" ifconfig_ath0_alias0="inet 192.168.6.205 netmask 255.255.255.255" ifconfig_ath0_alias1="inet 192.168.6.206 netmask 255.255.255.255" So I create ath0_up.sh in /usr/local/etc/rc.d as: #!/bin/sh /sbin/ifconfig ath0 inet 192.168.6.202 netmask 255.255.255.0 /sbin/ifconfig ath0 alias 192.168.6.205 netmask 255.255.255.255 /sbin/ifconfig ath0 alias 192.168.6.206 netmask 255.255.255.255 /sbin/route add default 192.168.6.1 Works without problems since then (but maybe someone has a hint how to avoid all this) Uwe _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
