9.1-RELEASE-p4 on amd64. This is a laptop with an Atheros 9280 wireless
chip in a domestic setting with a single router and a cable "modem".
I have never had to use wireless before, but am now in another room. I
have followed the handbook, and it seems to be working well. One question
though: 'ifconfig -a' shows *two* entries apparently relating to
wireless: ath0 and wlan0. The wlan0 one shows the IP address (fixed, not
DHCP), netmask, ssid and so forth, but the ath0 entry shows only:
ath0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11g
Is this how it should be?
