I am having problems getting the Hiro USB wireless adapter to work and think I might possibly be missing something.
Chip is Realtek RTL8191S.
I read the man pages for ndisgen and ndiscvt and the FreeBSD Handbook online.
Do I need
options NDISAPI # and
in the kernel config, even if I use modules resulting from ndiscvt or ndisgen?
I suppose these wouldn't hurt, I just put them in the kernel configs for i386 and amd64, awaiting next system rebuild for FreeBSD 9.1-BETA1 or PRERELEASE.
Also, I notice, in addition to the .inf and .sys files, there is a .cat file in the MS-Windows drivers:
net8192su.cat net8192su.inf rtl8192su.sys
What is the .cat file, is it a firmware driver?
Drivers are included for MS-Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7; all but Win 2000 include 32-bit and 64-bit.
