Re: Wireless net Card

2008-08-11 Thread Warren Liddell
 Which Belkin wireless card do you have? Which arch are you running
 (i386/amd64)?

 I had horrific trouble with a Belkin on the Realtek chipset, played up
 with Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Fedora, even Windows!

 Trouble with Belkin is, you never know what you're getting. You need
 the revision number of the card, and then find out which chipset it
 is. Make sure the drivers you downloaded are for that exact revision.

 Hope you have more luck than I did, I tossed mine and bought a Ralink.

AMD64 Arch  ironically it worked beautifully for ages in windows, but i  got 
sick of windows having been used to FreeBSD, so i re-installed FreeBSD an 
using the onboard LAN card atm, but am wanting to goto wireless.

class  = network
subclass   = ethernet


Chipset is RT8185L an i used the ndisgen to create the .ko file, which is just 
over 572kb in size.

ironically the 8180 works fine, but naturally wont do my wireless card.

 Please provide more detailed informatio. Card model, at least, or the
 output of

  pciconf -lv

 supposing that you have a real card, either internal or PCMCIA. If it
 is a USB model, then use

  usbdevs -v

Wireless net Card

2008-08-09 Thread Warren Liddell
I downloaded the drivers for the chipset my belkin wireless card has, used 
ndisgen to create the kernel module, which all went aok .. however when 
trying to load the module it hard hangs the machine to the point of it 
restarting itself .. is there something i perhaps mybe missing or am i out in 
the cold in not being able to use this wireless card untill some time a 
freebsd driver is done ?

Welp i tried the nidswrapper and made rtl8185_sys.ko, sadly when i used 
kldload it forced ma system to reboot, so im at a loss .. If i stuck the card 
in a windows machine would i be able to determine what chipset the wireles 
belkin card is using ?

Checking out the realtek page, there is a Linux Driver for the RTL8185L .. 
would that be able to be used more over then using NDIS with the windows 
driver ?

I thought you were asking about a FreeBSD driver.  If you are using
Linux then the driver may work.

I am using FreeBSD, but was wondering if the Linux driver may be backwards 
comnpat to suit the needs im wanting ?

Im trying to setup//configure my Belkin Wireless Card, but since i have had it 
for a while in a windows machine, im no clue about using a wireless card in 
FreeBSD an not as yet able to find to many sources//articles that can give me 
a head start on where to go to begin finding the cards chipset etc etc ..

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Run ifconfig; if your card's driver is built into the GENERIC kernel
(it likely is), then iconfig should list it.  Alternatively, you can
run pciconf -lv.  If you can't find your card in either of these,
please copy the output of those two to the list.

(Hint: a goodway to save the output of a command to a file is:
command | tee file).

The below would be the wireless card, being belkin, but i dont believe that it 
is listed as part of the drivers with a generic kernel which im running.
