  1. [fbsd62] dwl-g520 wifi PCI card + wpa


    Hi,

    Do I understand right, from ath manpage

    BUGS

    WPA is not supported for 5210 parts.

    and from dmesg

    ath0: mem 0xd8020000-0xd802ffff irq 18 at device 8.0 on pci4

    that WPA mode is not supported for my dwl-g520 PCI card, or do I make a mistake
    using

    ifconfig 82.239.204.38 netmask 255.255.255.0 mode 11g ssid gloups mediaopt hostap authmode wpa

    ?

    Cheers,

    Since if_ath supports ``AR5210, AR5211, and AR5212'' parts, I would
    expect that 5210 does not equal 5212 and that therefore the WPA not
    supported bug does not apply to your device.

    There is more to setting up wpa than just the ifconfig line. It quickly
    becomes quite the TLA soup, but whatever else; you need a supplicant
    running. FreeBSD 6 comes with one in the base system. I don't have a
    working setup here or I could show you the /etc/rc.conf lines needed.
    You could instead venture to read the handbook, specifically section
    27.3.3.1.3 and following subsections.

    Thanks for prompt reply and advices.

    In fact, I was missing device wlan_xauth in my kernel conf.

    I'm going to read the right handbook section.
