    Hi all,
    I have already successfully used EnGenius EUB-3701 EXT usb wifi dongle on FreeBSD 8.0 Release. As handbook instruction, I add following lines in /etc/rc.conf:
    Code:
    wlans_rum0="YES"
    ifconfig_wlan0="ssid linksys DHCP"


    Then I reboot and there are some messages in
    Code:
    dmesg

    Code:
    wlan0" Ethernet address:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
    wlan0: link state changed to UP
    rum0: need multicast update callback
    rum0: need multicast update callback
    rum0: need multicast update callback
    


    I check with
    Code:
    ifconfig

    The dongle is associated with AP correctly. But I am curious what this
    Code:
    rum0: need multicast update callback
    mean. Should I mis-do configuration? Thanks.

    regards,
    qichao

    sorry for typo. Have I done configuration incorrectly?

    Last month I downloaded a cd from ftp.freebsd.org and rum0 worked fine. I tried some other software on the system and now I'm back to installing freebsd on the same system but this time I downloaded the dvd to find I for some reason have a very flaky wireless connection. I can't seem to reliably fetch anything. And if it works, not for very long. Any recent changes that could account for this? last 30-60 days?

    If both the CD and the DVD are the same release there are no changes. The RELEASE CD/DVDs are never updated once they are released.

    the date stamp on the recent file I downloaded was after the date for the older cd I downloaded. Obviously I wouldn't post to the forum if that wasn't the case. And again they have been updated to 7/19/2010. I think they are kept more up to date than you realize.

    I've also been having issues with both making and maintaining a wireless encrypted connection. I'm not sure what's going and am currently not using dhclient at all. The connection just seems to drop for no particular reason. I don't believe my settings are incorrect since I'm currently using those to post this message.

    I too have noticed sketchy type connection with using this rum0 interface.

    Here are some things I am seeing from time to time:

    Code:
    [vic@hbca ~]$ dmesg | grep rum0
