Netgear USB WNDA3001v1 (a/b/g/n) Not Recognized.

  • I plugged in my "NETGEAR RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N USB Adapter" a.k.a. WNDA3100v1…

    I expected to find it available in the webConfigurator -> Interfaces: Assign Network Ports page (../interfaces_assign.php), but no such luck.

    Here is the log entry:

    As you can see, it's the last entry.

    ugen means no driver attached.

    Try a 2.2 snapshot

  • Thanks Jim,

    But, eh….  While we're ALL beta testers, really, I'm not ready to be an ALPHA tester!

    I've been able to look up which version of BSD has certain drivers, but have not been able to find match-ups between drivers and wireless devices/cards/chips...

    I'm not quite clear on the "ugen".  In the output I posted, earlier in the thread, where there are two similar entries with "ugen", with x.x & x.x.x numbers, the second entry has the driver info.  "ugen4.3" is the one without a driver, listing the Atheros chip of the WNDA3001....
