Re: Just obtained a wireless NIC

Hi Sephe,
Thanks for the reply. I got it working.

In regards to rc.conf are there any examples on how to put SSID, WEP key, etc into rc.conf?

Im actually using wpa_supplicant and it was a breeze. Perhaps the simplest way to make wpa_supplicant daemon start during boot would be by putting it in rc.local I guess? Though a standalone rc script would be nice. Are there any plans?

Another quesiton. Is it possible to get above 48Mbps? This card should do 54Mbps I believe.

. ..
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (OFDM/48Mbps)
. ..

It uses the acx111 chip. I read the acx, acxcontrol manpages but some
stuff I dont understand.

1) Loading firmware produces no output

After load the firmware, run: ifconfig acx0 up

You can scan APs by:
ifconfig acx0 scan
(given you have run ifconfig acx0 up)

2) How to change channels?

ifconfig acx0 channel x normally it is not necessary.

3) Where does all the configuration go so its saved for next reboot?

put it in /etc/rc.conf
