I'm Running FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE on a Dell Latitude.
I have a Linksys WPC54G. I've gotten the
sys/compat/ndis stuff and compiled and installed it
according to these instructions:
I'm currently at the O'Reilly open source conference,
which has a huge wireless network, and tons of users.
the card works fine on their network in my room.
when I'm downstairs in the sessions ( where all the
other people are too ), I get an IP address from the
dhcp server ( on the right network ), but I can't ping
anything, or connect to any machine. I can see
traffic ( via tcpdump ). also wicontrol behaves funny
( strange data output ). should I also update
ifconfig & wicontrol to current? also, it doesn't
let me switch channels using "ifconfig ndis0 channel
My windows drive works fine ( slow, but it works )
with this card.
I've turned all the debugging on via sysctl, and when
I plug the card in, there doesn't appear to be any
errors. and when I do a dhclient, I get "ndis0 link
when I get back up to my room, I'll boot up to FreeBSD
and reply with more detailed info.
anyone have any sugesstions?
