    I wonder why $ doas ifconfig wlan0 destroy $ doas ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev iwm0 wlanmode adhoc ifconfig: SIOCIFCREATE2 (wlan0): Operation not supported gives me operation not supported. Isn't adhoc supposed to be supported? What I want, is to directly connect my Thinkpad x250 and another...

    please share your experience with different hardware

    Hi everyone. A common question from FreeBSD users across desktop, server, and vendors is "which chips, NIC, SSD, WiFi, etc. hardware makers consistently offer good FreeBSD support?" This is a priority for me and a first step is to catalog the hardware makers that DO offer good support so the...

    iwn0 keeps going down

    I am currently running FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE on a ThinkPad T400. I will often be using my device, when the WiFi will suddenly shut off. i3status reports that it's "down" and wifimgr is blank. I've tried restarting all and any network-related daemons, to no avail, and wifimgr doesn't seem to be...

    WiFi support Raspberry Pi Zero 2W

    Hi all, FreeBSD on ARM states that the WiFi chip on the Zero 2W is unsupported ("Unsupported (BCM43438 Driver)"). Just wondering if: a) this is still the case, and if so b) if support is likely to be developed. I am happy to test if needed. In the absence of WiFi connectivity, does anyone...

    Solved WiFi puzzle

    The tl;dr version: For a specific WiFi AP, I can connect directly from the command line but not via wpa_supplicant.conf. That's the puzzle, why won't wpa_supplicant.conf work? The full version: This particular AP does not require a passphrase. Here's the two commands to connect to the WiFi...

    Using iwlwifi during install

    I'm trying to install FreeBSD 13.2. My laptop has an Intel 8260 Wireless-AC adapter. The live install media uses the "iwm" driver by default which does not work with this network adapter (no networks found). The "iwlwifi" driver works fine without issue when I set it up post install. How do I...

    WiFi Uplink

    I don't have a lot of experience with WiFi, but I want to put a switch into an area without a wired network connection. The easiest solution would seem to be a WiFi up-link. There is a Netgear WNDR4300 N750 next door. Are WiFi up-links a proprietary thing -- meaning that I have to buy two...
