    Broadcom 4313 in FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE

    I am trying to make it working. I found this post https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/is-it-possible-to-use-the-broadcom-bcm4313.26616/ and did everything as written there (found Windows driver, used ndisgen and rebuilt ndis module with the patch), but I still have kernel panics when I try to...

    wpa_supplicant.conf not being processed from rc.conf

    If I reboot and "service netif restart", my RTL8192CU will connect to a random available network, but will not get an IP address. It seems to not be looking at wpa_supplicant.conf. If I reboot and do "wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf", I will connect to the network specified...

    Wireless Adapter

    Well, I had a wireless adapter laying around, so I put it in the machine. The kernel sees it as a rlphy0 but that's the only place that I can find it. Here's the relevant dmesg. rlphy0: <RTL8201L 10/100 media interface> PHY 9 on miibus0 rlphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX...

    raspberry pi 2 wi-fi interface missing even module should be in the kernel

    Hello, 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...

    Wireless Network Card (not) showing

    I want to setup a failover on this notebook so that it prefers ethernet when a cable is inserted and falls back to wireless when absent ethernet using lagg. However, I can't find my wireless network card, which makes it difficult. As you can see from ifconfig, the ethernet card msk0 is up, and...

    Need wireless USB dongle recommendation (with good range)

    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...

    Solved Failing to route from wireless AP

    I was running a WAP from a Ralink PCI card. It worked fine except the signal was weak/spotty because the machine was in the basement. So I replaced the PCI WAP with an Intel network card and cabled that to a D-Link DAP-2330 upstairs. The signal is great now and I can see (tcpdump) traffic when I...

    Downgraded my Atheros Wireless Access Point

    Well I figured an APU3 was a waste as a FreeBSD Wireless Access Point. So I found an old Checkpoint U5 Firewall I had used as a pfSense Wireless Access Point before learning FreeBSD and hostAP. I am pretty surprised how well it does. It gets 3 bars signal whereas my APU3 with Ubiquity SR71E WAP...
