Intel 2200bg mess
I have pfsense 1.2.3-RELEASE on 7.2, Well i haved asked this issue in the freebsd forums and theyve redirected me here regarding iwi0
I have followed different procedures but to no avail. I have included the following in my /boot/loader.conf
legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1 if_iwi_load="YES" wlan_load="YES" firmware_load="YES" iwi_bss_load="YES" iwi_ibss_load="YES" iwi_monitor_load="YES"
During post boot there no errors. If i try to```
ifconfig iwi0 scan
ifconfig iwi0 list scan``` ==> shows no stations
ifconfig iwi0 iwi0: flags=8843 <up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>metric 0 mtu 1500 ether 00:0e:35:58:61:db inet6 fe80::20e:35ff:fe58:61db%iwi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4 inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 0xffffffff broadcast 192.168.1.1 media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect status: no carrier ssid none channel 11 (2462 Mhz 11g) authmode OPEN privacy OFF bmiss 10 scanvalid 60 bgscan bgscanintvl 300 bgscanidle 250 roam:rssi11g 7 roam:rate11g 5</up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>
I even tried to debug with```
wlandebug -i iwi0 +scan +auth +assoc +state
iwi0: sta_pick_bss: no scan candidate
iwi0: scan_next: done, restart [ticks 73448, dwell min 2 scanend 2147487453]
iwi0: scan_next: chan 14g -> 1g [active, dwell min 2 max 20]
iwi0: scan_next: chan 1g -> 6g [active, dwell min 2 max 20]
iwi0: scan_next: chan 6g -> 11g [active, dwell min 2 max 20]
iwi0: scan_next: chan 11g -> 7g [active, dwell min 2 max 20]
iwi0: scan_next: chan 7g -> 13g [active, dwell min 2 max 20]
Iam left clueless now.
Do you know there are active 802.11g access points in your vicinity?
Have you followed the procedure in the sticky note Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG support - Howto New listed at the top of this forum?
Its not clear to me there any error here and its even less clear why you think there is something noteworthy. Why are you expecting anything different to be displayed?
I have three ap's 2 are operating on G and the other is on B/G
Yes I have followed every step, I am way ahead keeping track of notes in updates in src/sys/UPDATING
Well, I even added a 6dbi omni antenna attached to a pigtail. I am expecting for atleast the two ap's in G mode would appear in the list?
What could it be? Does anyone have the same card running on freebsd 7.2?
