Default 9.1 on MacBook Pro Late 2011 problems
Hello.

I installed PC-BSD now on my MacBook Pro '15 Late 2011.

The first problem is that I dont have WiFi. So how can I get my wireless network card working?

The second problem is the graphic card. All things look pretty strange and ugly so I think the card driver is not correct. I chose Vesa and my 1440x900 resolution but its not correct working. I think the driver or resolution isnt set up correct.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

PS: I looked now at detected hardware devices and the video driver (vesa) and the wifi card are not detected.

Can you tell us about your Network Card and about your Graphic Card (exactly), please?

Sure. This is the graphic card:

Quote:
AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory on 2.4GHz configuration
And the graphic chip which is used the most time:

PHP Code:
Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 384MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory 
The best would be if I can use the chip for the most things like surfing the web or other standard desktop activities. The Radeon card is only needed for massive video editing and things like that. (Thats the way OSX is doing it). I think the chip is much better because of fan control I absolutely cant work if the fan is always on and make noise.

Thats my network card:

Broadcom BCM 4331
Thanks a lot.

For your Broadcom card:

It will probably take a bit of work to get it right. If you haven't had any luck with your GPU, you're probably stuck using the vesa driver. AFAIK, the HD5***+ series cards aren't supported yet.

Hope that helps a little.
