How are you configuring the wireless card? I'm using the same card on 5.2.1 Release on a Dell Inspiron 8100. The only change I had to make to the scripts I used on FreeBSD 4.10 was to delete: authmode "shared" (I don't know why the change was needed since the wireless lan and access point stayed the same.) Here's the contents of the script (I've changed the addresses and codes): ifconfig wi0 inet 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid "mywan" nwkey 0x1234567890 #(everything above should be on one line) route add default 192.168.0.1 echo domain cablelynx.com > /etc/resolv.conf echo nameserver 18.104.22.168 >> /etc/resolv.conf echo nameserver 22.214.171.124 >> /etc/resolv.conf echo wi0 If you try the script above and still get the error message, try adding the following to the beginning of the script so the script gets a clean start on the card: ifconfig wi0 remove Best of luck, Andrew Gould _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
