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


    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

    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?
