System Crash when Enable OPT1



  • Hi..

    I tried to install 2.0 beta version and all looking good. But when I Enable OPT1(PCI Wireless card: D-Link DWA-510). The system hang and crash… It's seem Driver issue. For you reference.!



  • Hi,

    I have the same problem, there is a console error:

    ral0: need multicast update callback
    ..
    rt2561fw: could not load firmware image…

    Do you found a solution?



  • I reinstalled and I have attached a screenshot of the error in console



  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    It may help to type "bt" at that prompt and get a backtrace as well.



  • BTW, is there a way to get the output in a file to send it after a reboot? Or only catch the output via serial? Its maybe off topic, but nice to know… Thanks


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Right now the only way is serial. I don't think anyone has gotten around to adding dumpdev/textdump support to 2.0 yet. I meant to a month or so ago but got sidetracked.



  • OK, now Im back home, resintall pfsense

    2.0-BETA1
    built on Thu Dec 31 08:54:26 EST 2009

    Enable Wifi on OPT1, crash again, and here are the screenshots

    I hope this could be useful

    Looks like something broken in the ral driver when interacting with your card/chipset.

    Does this same card work in pfSense 1.2.3?

    Unfortunately there isn't much that pfSense can do about driver issues, as the drivers are a part of FreeBSD.

  • Sounds like the same thing someone reported on the mailing list recently. I don't have any ral cards to try to see what might be triggering that, and report it upstream to get fixed. If someone would like to contribute a card to the cause, email me (cmb at pfsense dot org).



  • I'm sorry but I think  I'm a little far from you, I'm in Chile, so could be to expensive for me to send a card to you.

    I tried now with a Linksys PCI WiFi card, and it works, I set up it in AP mode, but it doesnt work as AP, its visible, I can conect to it, it provides IP via DHCP, but no routing and is not possible to connect to PFsense BOX by this interface, this is the configuration:

    • <opt1><descr>WiFi</descr>
        <if>ral0</if>
    • <wireless><standard>11g</standard>
        <mode>hostap</mode>
        <protmode>off</protmode>
        <ssid>PF</ssid>
        <channel>1</channel>
        <authmode><txpower>99</txpower>
        <distance>- <wpa><macaddr_acl><auth_algs>1</auth_algs>
        <wpa_mode>2</wpa_mode>
        <wpa_key_mgmt>WPA-PSK</wpa_key_mgmt>
        <wpa_pairwise>CCMP TKIP</wpa_pairwise>
        <wpa_group_rekey>60</wpa_group_rekey>
        <wpa_gmk_rekey>3600</wpa_gmk_rekey>
        <passphrase>12345678</passphrase>
        <ext_wpa_sw><enable></enable></ext_wpa_sw></macaddr_acl></wpa></distance></authmode></wireless>
        <enable><spoofmac><ipaddr>172.27.101.1</ipaddr>
        <subnet>24</subnet></spoofmac></enable></opt1>
