Topic: Intel 3945ABG and FreeBSD-7-RELEASE

Hi.

I'm trying to set up my wireless interface :

ifconfig

wpi0: flags=8803<UP,BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:13:02:e2:f6:bc

        status: no carrier
        ssid "" channel 1 (2412 Mhz 11b)

/boot/loader.conf

if_wpi_load="YES"
wlan_load="YES"
wlan_amrr_load="YES"
legal.intel_wpi.license.ack=1
wpifw_load="YES"

dmesg

ifconfig wpi0 up scan

freaker#ifconfig wpi0 up scan

ifconfig wpi0 list scan

freaker#ifconfig wpi0 list scan

I should see wireless networks, no?

You should ask this on the mailinglists because wpi is a experimental driver.

Or you could mail Ben directly.
