My Internet connection on this computer is very iffy at best, not running as I type this.
Motherboard is MSI Z77 MPOWER. Ethernet is Realtek (re): good with NetBSD, Linux and Haiku, (Free,Open and DragonFly)BSD bug out. Only Internet connection for FreeBSD is Hiro H50191 USB-stick wireless adapter, chipset RTL8191SU, device rsu. Sometimes it connects. Running ifconfig (by itself), I get, whether connection is working ot not, lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 16384 options=600003<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,RXCSUM_IPV6,TXCSUM_IPV6> inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000 nd6 options=21<PERFORMNUD,AUTO_LINKLOCAL> rsu0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290 options=1<RXCSUM> ether 00:13:33:a2:86:f0 nd6 options=29<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED,AUTO_LINKLOCAL> media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11g status: associated wlan0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500 ether 00:13:33:a2:86:f0 inet 192.168.0.102 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255 nd6 options=29<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED,AUTO_LINKLOCAL> media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet OFDM/54Mbps mode 11g status: associated ssid Maclura_pomifera channel 8 (2447 MHz 11g) bssid a0:f3:c1:f9:39:7a country US authmode WPA2/802.11i privacy ON deftxkey UNDEF AES-CCM 2:128-bit txpower 0 bmiss 7 scanvalid 60 bgscan bgscanintvl 300 bgscanidle 250 roam:rssi 7 roam:rate 5 protmode CTS roaming MANUAL Looks good, but running host on a valid domain, such as host bluegrass.net gives me ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached Even when the connection is successful, it can quit any time without warning, and only way I can tell is by trying to reach an internet domain. I feel like Cinderella, but she had the advantage of knowing that her coach would turn back to a pumpkin at exactly midnight. Internet connectivity problems are the same whether I run FreeBSD-current or 10.0-STABLE. FreeBSD < 10.0 offers no internet connectivity at all. Now I have to save this message, shutdown and boot into NetBSD to send it. I also use NetBSD to update src, ports and doc trees with subversion.
