Wireless USB devices show as CDROMS, but there are a lot of ugly possibilities to implement this. Usually it is something like a SCSI-eject command telling the device to change it's class. Most devices today are switched by u3g, but there also is a manual way with usb_modeswitch (http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/) to understand what is really happening. My own experiences are written down here (in german, but the commands should be enough to understand what I am doing): http://michael.fuckner.net/me/blog/index.php?/archives/471-UMTS-mit-FreeBSD8.html Regards, Michael! _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
