On an Acer 5520/5679 laptop, I don't see a way to get wireless
working. I'm running:
8.0-CURRENT-200712 FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT-200712 #0: Sun Dec 30 11:33:37 CST 2007
The dmesg shows it detected but can't attach:
ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0xf2200000-0xf220ffff irq 19 at device
0.0 on pci5
ath0: unable to attach hardware; HAL status 13
device_attach: ath0 attach returned 6
pciconf -lv shows:
ath0 at pci0:5:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x04281468 chip=0x001c168c
vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
device = 'AR5006 family 802.11abg Wireless NIC'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
Is there something else that I need to do. Any help appreciated.
