  1. ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument

    Hi,

    I'm having trouble putting IP address in atheros PCMCIA card.

    Did syntax of ifconfig change in CURRENT? It was working before on RELENG_7.

    devil# ifconfig ath0 inet 192.168.2.60 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid
    freebsdap mode 11b mediaopt adhoc
    ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
    devil#
    devil# ifconfig ath0 ssid freebsd inet 192.168.2.60 netmask 255.255.255.0
    ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
    devil# ifconfig ath0 ssid freebsd mediaopt adhoc inet 192.168.2.60
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
    devil# ifconfig ath0 ssid freebsd mode 11b mediaopt adhoc inet
    192.168.2.60 netmask 255.255.255.0
    ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
    devil# ifconfig ath0 inet 192.168.2.60 netmask 255.255.255.0
    ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Invalid argument
    devil#


    thanks,

    Ganbold

    In -CURRENT you can't work directly with the underlying wireless card,
    you must first clone wlanX devices, and use them.

    See ifconfig manual page and /etc/defaults/rc.conf for examples.
