Hello FreeBSD Users,
I have installed FreeBSD on my old Apple MacBook Pro(2015). Before installing FreeBSD I have tried the Debian based Linux on my old Apple MacBook pro. Everything is working fine with Debian os. But I wanted to move it to BSD OS really badly. Now I have a problem to make...
Hello FreeBSD forums! I'd love to make the switch to BSD as a current Linux user. However, my laptop is an Acer Aspire R5-571T-57Z0 and I can't seem to find the correct drivers. I know that in the installation of Debian, I had to grab extra firmware files. In looking around elsewhere, I found...
I purchased a Edimax EW-7811UTC WiFi USB adapter because someone in the #freebsd IRC channel told me his EW-7811ULC USB adapter was automatically detected by FreeBSD, I was hoping EW-7811UTC would work as it is similar but has higher possible download speeds. Unfortunately, it's not...
I have had captive portal on my bucket list for a while. I want to pipe my IP cams to a neighborhood WAP portal via Zoneminder.
Anybody using FreeBSD for a captive portal? pfSense really had a nice implementation. What do you recommend?
Obviously I looked around and see WifiDog and some others...
I just hot my new raspberry pi 2. I see a big fat Broadcom chip on it that says "BCM2836" and I'm sure that this one should be the wireless card.
I'm using a standard image for RPI2 with nothing custom on it.
I have downloaded the source and on the default conf file I see that it's...
Hi again! This time I want to know how to create a wireless network (WiFi).
I have 11.1-RELEASE-p6 on a i386 processor.
And yes, also I have a wifi USB adapter. It is a TP-LINK TL-WN722N.
I want to know, what I need to configure to be able to use this USB as an antenna?
Hi guys, I have this problem I can not sort out, I hope you can give me some ideas.
The story is I made an Wireless Access point in FreeBSD-11.1 running in an BeagleBone Black.
My wifi adapter is an Alfa AWUS036HN, recognized as "run0", 802.11g. [n not available]
The thing works, the olny...
Apologies in advance for being unsure where best to post. I've recently noticed upon reviewing my home network that my VZW Samsung S7 smg930v appears as type: 'FreeBSD' rather than 'Samsung Galaxy' or 'unknown'.
This lead me here. I wonder if this is anything to be concerned about...
I know this question has probably been asked a thousand times here (sorry) but I'm in need of a quality wireless USB dongle with very good range (i.e. antenna).
Currently I'm using an Edimax nano dongle that I bought off Amazon which connects fine, but the signal is very weak. I'm sure with a...
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 with the Centrino Advanced-N 6205 card. I've got FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT installed and I can successfully connect to my home WiFi on the 5 GHz band. However, I'm noticing that there is a significant performance hit to my Internet speeds.
When I had a Linux distro...
I'm in the situation where my desktop needs to have wifi. It runs the latest RELEASE amd64 version of FreeBSD. I would much rather have wired ethernet, but it's rather difficult to run wires in my current setup.
Are there any well-supported, high quality desktop WiFi cards? I've been trying to...
The command "pciconf -lv | grep -B3 network" outputs two things. One being my Ethernet device and the other my Qualcomm Atheros device.
Device: QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter
ifconfig doesn't seem to detect my wireless device.
What can I do to...
I have a dell latitude d830 laptop with an intel pro/wireless 4965 wifi card. With windows 7 and with debian gnu/linux I had data transfer rates into the internet at around 240 kB/s (the maximum my provider offers here).
Unfortunately there was a serious hard disc crash so I replaced...
I have asked a similar question in this thread(59187#post-342471) but I'm not the author of the thread so I figure a new thread would be a good idea.
My laptop comes with Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 wireless card and I have all the reason to believe that it will not be supported well through its...
Fresh guy here (First try BSD, just want some this true UNIX feel), but I got one problem.
I got Lenovo Y70. I install FreeBSD from usb, all go nice and smooth ,making a 3 partitions (auto from Bsd installer) swap, boot, and /.
I am using Grub 2 to boot BSD , i got grub installed on...
I upgraded to FreeBSD 11 yesterday. Seems like you can't manage interface settings with ifconfig anymore.
For instance, I used to do this:
ifconfig ath0 ether ff:ff:ff:...
ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev ath0
Now, I can't do anything to ath0. If I set the mac address on wlan0, it...
I am running FreeBSD 11 RC1 on a raspberry pi 2. I have a urtwn usb wifi device. I can get it associated with my access point, but it just won't seem to send/receive any traffic: not DHCP packets, and not pings if I configure it statically.
# uname -a
FreeBSD rpi2 11.0-RC1 FreeBSD...
I've got a little problem with my WLAN-Configuration. The WLAN-Card of my laptop is not supported by FreeBSD, so I bought an USB adapter with a Realtek RTL 8192CU chip.
Then I put the lines
into my /boot/loader.conf like described in...
