I've finally gotten emulators/qemu to work with bridge/tap networking on
FreeBSD-7.0-BETA1 i386 using bfe0: <Broadcom BCM4401-B0 Fast Ethernet>
For reference, I used the tutorial listed at:
My issue is, however, that QEMU/bridge/tap does not work with my
wireless NIC (ath0: <Atheros 5212>)
The question, is there a work-around for this issue? My first thought
was to bridge the loopback device. I tried adding the loopback device
lo0 to the bridge (ifconfig bridge0 addm lo0 up) but that failed with an
error (ifconfig: BRDGADD lo0: Invalid argument).
Any help, pointers is much appreciated.
