Hello,

I'm trying using this wireless adapter on FreeBSD 10.2. I can create the wlan0 interface successfully and run wpa_supplicant and dhclient on it with no errors, but when I trying a ping scan it returns "network is down" message. Anyone knows what's happening?

In my /boot/loader.conf I have this lines:

Code:
wlan_wep_load="YES"
wlan_ccmp_load="YES"
wlan_tkip_load="YES"
if_urtwn_load="YES"
urtwn-rtl8192cfwU_load="YES"
legal.realtek.license_ack=1
The dmesg command doesn't show anything wrong when I plugged the device:

Code:
urtwn0: <vendor 0x0bda product 0x8178, class 0/0, rev 2.00/2.00, addr 3> on usbus0
urtwn0: MAC/BB RTL8192CU, RF 6052 2T2R
Thanks to all.
PS: sorry if my English is not well, is not my native language.

Sorry, the ifconfig output is:

The wlan0 interface is up with an IP assigned through dhcpd, but the ping command says "network down" always.

Thanks.

Ok, I found the problem. When I do the ping command, the interface where ping exit was the wired interface re0. To test, I unplugged the ethernet and I bring up the usb wireless and it works.

Thanks to all.
