I have been using a FreeBSD based wifi network for about 5 months now,
reading the handbook made this a breeze.
Introducing wifi to one of my boxes that would have uptimes of months
now causes lock-ups of some sort, the machine just completely dies
atleast to any networking access and I haven't seen any panicks yet
which doesn't really help, power-cycling is the only resolution.
if_ral is in HostAp mode.
I also get the same kind of symptomns on my laptop, also with an
if_ral, both are manufactured by MSI: MSI CB54G2 and MSI PC54G2.
Heavy networking like file transfering, lots of SSH sessions (5/6) and
general web browsing cause this to happen a lot, yet if I just do web
browsing there will be no lock-up for weeks on end, yet as soon as I
start doing heavy networking again it will lock up all with in 10
I've even tried using just 11b or 54g modes.
Please CC me.
