Hello! I am pretty new to BSD world <BSDn00b here!>. I just installed FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE on my system.
# uname -a FreeBSD titanic.rootkea.me 10.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE #0 r274401: Tue Nov 11 21:02:49 UTC 2014 r...@releng1.nyi.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64 # pciconf -lv | grep -B3 -i wireless subclass = HDA none3@pci0:18:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x00101028 chip=0x472714e4 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Broadcom Corporation' device = 'BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller' I have also installed the port net/bwn-firmware-kmod using make install clean. I have also made changes to /boot/loader.conf as suggested in the Handbook. Here is my /boot/loader.conf # cat /boot/loader.conf if_bwn_load="YES" wlan_wep_load="YES" wlan_ccmp_load="YES" wlan_tkip_load="YES" But now I am confused about the next step. According to handbook it should be # ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0  I have no idea what to write in place of ath0. So I tried bwn and bwn0. But both the times system said "ifconfig : SIOCIFCREATE2 : Device not configured" So how do I access wireless in my FreeBSD box? PS- On surfing the net I stumbled upon using ndisgen to install the BCM4313 driver . But I would really appreciate if there is any other way to natively install the driver on FreeBSD instead of converting the WINDOWS(R) driver. Or is this the only way? Please help.
