Re: Realtek wireless card support

2017-02-20 Thread Vincent Hoffman-Kazlauskas
Hi,
Odd its not working, from what you pasted below
rtwn0@pci0:7:0:0:class=0x028000 card=0x1629103c chip=0x817610ec
rev=0x01 hdr=0x00

Its showing the driver as attached.
whats the output of
grep rtwn /var/run/dmesg.boot

Also i'm bring the freebsd-wireless mailing list back in as more eyes
are better for solving this kind of stuff and also I can be a bit slow
at replying (work, small children, cats, etc etc)

Hi,
according to the manpage, rtwn should be the correct driver (based
solely on a quick search using
root@bsdpkgbuild:~ # apropos Realtek | grep -i 8188ce
rtwn(4) - Realtek RTL8188CE PCIe IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network device )
and a quick read of the manpage suggests adding

if_rtwn_load="YES"
legal.realtek.license_ack=1
rtwn-rtl8192cfwU_load="YES"
rtwn-rtl8192cfwU_B_load="YES"


to /boot/loader.conf
and rebooting.
check its been seen ok by running
sysctl net.wlan.devices

which should return something like
net.wlan.devices: rtwn0

from there you should be ok to follow the handbook on wireless.


Hope that helps,
Vince
