Hi Gleb and the rest, Thank you all for the replies. The card is a Senao NL-2054PCI, based on the Atheros chipset... pciconf -lv reports:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:9:0: class=0x020000 card=0x2027168c chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.' device = '802/11b/g AR5212 wireless Adapter' class = network subclass = ethernet As I did indicate, the card is working and functioning properly - I am 99% sure it is a problem related with PPPoEd, or something in regards to PPPoE over the Ethernet card (which, can also be possible I guess). I've tried all the other suggestions that was made, and none of them seemed to have changed anything. From what I can see, the client sends and attempts to initiate the PPPoE connection properly, but the PPPoE daemon does not receive the packets / or does not initiate a session - which, needs to be completed before any sub processes will be spawned. It's quite urgent that I get this working.... An alternative would be to port the ath drivers to the 4.X tree - but I really don't think that's even a option.... I can only imagine the amount of work that would be required for this. Are there possibly any other open source PPPoE Daemons available that I can possibly try on FreeBSD 5.2?? Look forward to hearing from you all -- me ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gleb Smirnoff" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "Chris Knipe" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Friday, July 16, 2004 9:35 PM Subject: Re: PPPoE misbehaving? > Chris, > > what network card do you have? > > On Fri, Jul 16, 2004 at 07:53:21PM +0200, Martin wrote: > M> Am Fr, den 16.07.2004 schrieb Chris Knipe um 12:44: > M> > M> > Also fine....
