Default Help with Intel 2100 pro/wireless MiniPCI
On my laptop Acer TravelMate 290 every thing works fine but wireless.When i go to System Settings and configure my wireless my laptop restarts.I scan,find my network,enter my wep key and when i press apply the system freezes and then reboots.

LAN works fine.


Code:
[taz@pcbsd-6442]/home/taz(8)% ifconfig

ipw0: [ITHREAD]
ipw0: no firmware

pls help me i am going out of my mind with this...also thees are all PC-BSD default configurations I did not add anything to rc.conf or loader.conf

also if i try to install ipw-firmware it says that that port is obsolite and use ipw-firmware-kmod...when i try to install kmod it says that that is already loaded in the base system.. :?: :?:

Remove the those lines from your rc.conf and keep just the ones necessary for network configuration.

Or, you could comment them out entirely and configure the network manual to make sure that it works first. Then write in only the necessary lines to keep it at the setup that you like.

Default Re: Help with Intel 2100 pro/wireless MiniPCI
Thank you for the replay I hope we will solve this problem because I am a FreeBSD user on my PC and decided to go with pcbsd for my laptop.If i cant make this work I will be forced to install Ubuntu and that just makes me wana cry so I'm not giving up just yet(althou i have been trying to figure this out for the past few days).Here is what i did so far.

loader.conf

when i load ipw_bss then i dont get the error in dmesg "no firmware" like before.

Also if you look at this link http://damien.bergamini.free.fr/ipw/ipw-freebsd.html
ipwcontrol command is mentioned but that dose not exist any more since ipw-firmware is no longer used,ipw-firmware-kmod is,witch is already in the base system.

Code:
# Load Wireless Support
if_ipw_load="YES"
#if_iwi_load="YES"
#if_wpi_load="YES"
#if_iwn_load="YES"
#legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
#legal.intel_wpi.license_ack=1
#legal.intel_iwn.license_ack=1

wlan_load="YES"
#firmware_load="YES"
#ipwfw_load="YES"
ipw_bss_load="YES"
#ipw_ibss_load="YES"
#ipw_monitor_load="YES"

legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
rc.conf

Code:
# Auto-Enabled NICs from pc-sysinstall
#ifconfig_rl0="up"
#ifconfig_ipw0="`ifconfig rl0 ether`"
#ifconfig_ipw0="ether ${ifconfig_ipw0##*ether }"
wlans_ipw0="wlan0"
#cloned_interfaces="lagg0"
#ifconfig_lagg0="laggproto failover laggport rl0 laggport ipw0 DHCP"

hostname="pcbsd-3679"
now i try to configure it using

Code:
ifconfig wlan0 inet 192.168.1.7 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid SpeedTouch03FACC wepkey 0xBFF9458C7D weptxkey 1 wepmode on

ifconfig wlan0 up

then my ipw0 gets associated but wlan0 dose not:

Code:
ipw0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290
        ether 00:0c:f1:13:b6:6a
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11b
        status: associated
...

wlan0: flags=8c03<UP,BROADCAST,OACTIVE,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:0c:f1:13:b6:6a
        inet6 fe80::20c:f1ff:fe13:b66a%wlan0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x9
        inet 192.168.1.7 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (autoselect)
        status: no carrier
        ssid SpeedTouch03FACC channel 6 (2437 Mhz 11b)
        country US authmode OPEN privacy ON deftxkey 1 wepkey 1:40-bit
        txpower 0 bmiss 7 scanvalid 60
then I look at dmesg

Code:
dmesg | grep ipw0
and i get this:

Code:
root@pcbsd-3679# dmesg | grep ipw0
ipw0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2100 MiniPCI> mem 0xe0000000-0xe0000fff irq 10 at device 2.0 on pci1
ipw0: [ITHREAD]
ipw0: need multicast update callback
ipw0: need multicast update callback
ipw0: need multicast update callback
ipw0: need multicast update callback
ipw0: need multicast update callback

The card is recognised i can also scan using ifconfig wlan0 scan but what is this "need multicast update callback".I get this message after i try to configure it manually...If i try to configure it using kde wirelless tool it just crashes and restarts like before.

Hope this helps in understanding my problem.

Did you satisfy the requirements in the handbook for wireless setup?
