This is NOT a wireless question.
I am running FreeBSD 8.3-p1.
I want to connect to Clear Wireless Internet. I know I cannot do this with
a Clear dongle, because Clear uses WiMax which is not supported.
Instead I have a Clear hub modem. I want to connect by ethernet to it by
I get this from ifconfig:
re0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
But I don't have a clue what to do from here.
The hub is supposed to have a web page at (imaginary address) 192.168.15.1,
but I haven't been able to raise it.
The handbook has only a couple of references to ethernet, neither of which
seem to apply here, and seem to be from the point of view of setting up a
hub server, but the hub is more or less a black box to me.
If anyone has already done this, please explain -- slowly and loudly.
Oh, yeah, Clear Customer Service is strictly for the entertainment of
