[PC-BSD] USB Problems on Samsung RF510-S03AU

Postby Kaos88 » 29 Mar 2011, 08:07

Hey guys
I recently installed PC BSD on my RF510-S03AU Laptop
The problem I am currently having is that none of the usb's recognise any devices at all.
I am very aware that broadcom internal wireless seems to be a large issue with Linux and Unix based OS.

My question here is how can I get my USB to recognise anything?
I have a USB wireless dongle handy Dlink DWA-110. I have tried NDISwrapper to install windows drivers into BSD but it still seems to refuse to accept them.

I am terrible at linux and unix codes so anything you guys could write up that I couls C&P into terminal or Jail would be fantastic.

If you have any questions about the specs of my laptop they are as follows.

Processor

Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 720QM (1.60GHz/ 6MB)

Memory

4 GB (DDR3 / 2 GB x 2) System Memory

Graphic

2 GB (GDDR3) of Dedicated External Graphics Memory
NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M Dedicated Graphics Processor

Storage

640 GB (5400 rpm S-ATA) Hard Drive

Communication

10/100/1000 Wired EtherNet LAN
802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN attached
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS enabled

/O Port

VGA Port included
HDMI Port included
HeadPhone-out Port included
Mic-in Port included
Internal Mic Port included

Link to exact specs and more information

I am currently running Ubuntu 10.10 and it is pretty much working flawlessly.
Also running Win7 Ultimate x64 and the Ubuntu is x64

Thanks so much for your help

No I hadn't. I sort of automatically went straight for the source. I feel sort of silly now and apologise about posting in the wrong area.

The specs claim it has two USB 2.0 and two "UBS" 3.0 ports. Assuming that's a typo, figure out which ports are which. The 2.0 ports may work with FreeBSD. The 3.0 ports, probably not yet. HPS announced USB 3.0 code for testing on the freebsd-usb mailing list.

It's not a problem if you ask it here, so long as you know what the pitfalls/problems may be.

Even the 2.0 USB doesn't even react to anything.
