I'm not sure wether syntax has changed but I wanted to cretae an wlan
and tried various things. Under 7.0 I got it working with the following
ifconfig rum0 inet 10.0.0.1/24 mediaopt hostap ssid CITYOFFICE wepmode
on wepkey 0xf00baf00ba weptxkey 1 channel 1
I tried this but got a socket error "Invalid argument".
Then I tried (from an example in the rum (4) manpage):ifconfig wlan
create wlandev rum0 10.0.0.1/24 mediaopt hostap CITYOFFICE wepmode on
wepkey 0xf00baaf00baa weptxkey 1 channel 1
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA (media): Device not configured
But suddenly the wlan0 device is there.
Can anybody fill me in?
