Ping packet loss w/Intel 2200BG (iwi) on FreeBSD 11.0 Hi,
Sorry if it’s a repost. But I wasted/sacrificed a few days (weekends!!!) and found no solution to my problem online, and almost got to a point of hopelessness and giving up on freebsd. The problem: - ping 127.0.0.1 or assigned ip - 0% packet loss; - ping [some remote host] > 20% packet loss (both ways); 1. The issue exists for 11g regardless of WPA2 or authmode:OPEN (no wpa_supplicant); 2. It’s not due to faulty hardware; I have two ThinkPad T43 (I know, it’s 2017, but I’m a sucker for this kind of fun), they both exhibit the problem; 3. There are absolutely no issues with setting up wlan0 interface: cloning (ifconfig wlan0 .. create wlandev iwi0..), wpa_subblicant, dhclient wlan0 – everything works like a charm. Thank you!!!; I didn’t want to give up on freebsd w/o a fight and started trying out different ‘ifconfig .. create ..’ settings. The ' -wme' field did the trick for me: # ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev iwi0 -wme up I only have 1% packet loss now, which I can live with. # pciconf -lv .. iwi0@pci0:4:2:0: class=0x.. .. device = 'PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection' class = 'network' .. # ifconfig wlan0 list caps drivercaps=..<STA,IBSS,PMGT,SHPREAMBLE,MONITOR,MBSS,WPA1,WPA2,WME> Hope this helps someone. -epmakk _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-wireless To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-wireless-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
