    Another BCM4322 (FreeBSD 12)

    I would like to apologise in advance, if this is straight-forward, and/or answered elsewhere on the forum--I have tried for the past few hours to look hard before I dared ask any questions, and I combed through the WiFi section of the Handbook, etc. Basically, in short, I am using an EliteBook...

    BCM4331 802.11n seems tantalisingly close on mid-2011 Mac mini, using bhnd and if_bwn_pci.ko on FreeBSD 11.2-BETA1

    My ageing Mac mini running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 was finally hosed by Apple's Security Update 2018-001 (the one for the debug exception). Both 10.13.4 Recovery and 10.13.4 Internet Recovery failed to boot, but the 'D' built-in hardware test seemed to give the machine a clean bill of health...

    BXE 10Gb NIC Help

    I'm translating this over from the pfSense forum, since it appears to be more of an issue with FreeBSD. (https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=146029.0) I have had my pfSense router working flawlessly for over 60 days now running 2.3.3 (FreeBSD 10.3). I tried to upgrade on several...

    BCM20702A0 bluetooth dongle not working

    Hello - Warning: I'm new to FreeBSD. I've looked at a lot of posts and cannot figure this out. I have done some debugging with the code to realize that it doesn't seem to pass the function call usbd_lookup_id_by_uaa in /usr/src/netgraph/bluetooth/drivers/ubt/ng_ubt.c. But to further debug, I...

    BCM4360 802.11ac supported yet?

    I bought a Rosewill AC1300 (without proper research), and I have tried all the avenues of approach I can. ndisgen created a kernel module that would break my install using the supplied drivers. I also have tried bwn, bwi, if_bwn_pci, and have yet to find anything to get a workable solution...

    NDIS wireless help on 11.1-BETA3

    I recently upgraded to 11.1-BETA3 due to its patch fixing ndis. However, I cannot get ndis to work. I am using the 64-bit Win2000/XP drivers downloaded from here (I'm on amd64), and the generated module loads with very little issue (except for no match for IoWMIOpenBlock and no match for...

    Solved Broadcom BCM4306, or BCM2050 support?

    Greetings, all. I was gifted a PCI wireless NIC, and just got the opportunity to plug it into a spare I had, to see how it worked. Sadly, FreeBSD didn't even notice it. :( OK, it's a Broadcom -- see closed source; so I didn't have unrealistic expectations. ;) But I do know that alot of work has...

    Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Device

    Hi, yesterday I installed FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT and wanted to set up my wifi. I have a Broadcom BCM4313 and I read googleing there were some problems attempting to get this card working with the net/bwn-firmware-kmod, so some people used ndis to use the Windows' drivers. Because I wouldn't like...
