Inspired by the long "modern installer" thread I had a look at PC-BSD.
I am one of the "lucky" owners of a Broadcom, Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN
and added the ndiswrapper to support it.
I noticed that the PC-BSD tray icon could not scan the network for SSID,
while ifconfig does return this list. It appears that the tool assumes
SSID are reported as
SSID<session>, which is not the case here. My list is similar as listed
in the handbook,
so I guess it is not directly related to the ndiswrapper.
Looking at ifconfig, it appears to me that the ieee80211 part queries
the kernel and prints the returned values.
I therefore assume that there are drivers, which report the session as
SSID<session> instead of session directly.
Can someone confirm above is correct?
If someone has a list with SSID<session> could I get a copy of it (e.g.
directly to my e-mail) so I don't break
other things while fixing mine.
