Bug in wireless



  • take alook on that topic

    http://forum.m0n0.ch/index.php/topic,6135.0.html

    i think it is the same in pfsense as i said on that topic. as i cannot find "runfw_load" at all in /boot/defaults/loader.conf
    but i see 2 lines
    if_run_load="NO" # Ralink Technology USB 802.11a/g/n wireless
    if_run_load="NO" # Ralink USB 802.11 wireless adaptert

    so i guess the second one should be runfw_load



  • after editing /boot/defaults/loader.conf  by replacing

    if_run_load="NO"      # Ralink USB 802.11 wireless adaptert

    with
    runfw_load="NO"                # Firmware Module for Ralink driver

    and reboot with connecting my USB wifi
    system logs shows

    Feb 10 13:55:32 kernel: runfw: root not mounted yet, no way to load image
    Feb 10 13:55:32 kernel: run0: failed loadfirmware of file runfw
    Feb 10 13:55:32 kernel: run0: could not load 8051 microcode
    Feb 10 13:55:32 kernel: device_attach: run0 attach returned 6

    so maybe kernel was not compiled with option "device runfw"
