WiFi as WAN

  • 2.3-RC (amd64)

    Seen from console.  I haven't found a log file that contains this info.  Attached file to see full output.

    ath0: ath_reset_grablock: didn't finish after 10 iterations
    ath0: ath_reset_grablock: warning, recursive reset path!
    ath0: ath_reset: concurrent reset! Danger!
    ath0: ath_legacy_rx_tasklset: sc:_inreset_cnt > 0; skipping

    Atheros based PCI card.  AR2413A-001 (Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card)

    This is setup up as a second WAN for fail-over in the event I lose primary (Comcast).  Manually connecting to hotspot on phone (double NAT and all)  This is an older device that I used to use as an access point in pfSense and it worked well.  I have 2 and both act the same way.

    CFG looks like this:
    Infrastructure (BSS)
    WPA2, Pre-Shared Key
    Everything else is set to defaults

    Card will work after a reboot without an issue.  Had it running for 4 hours or so.  If you change the interface in pfSense or turn off the hotspot and turn it back on connectivity will go up and down.  Today I got the above messages at the console.

    If there are any logs that would be helpful please tell me and I'll include them in a followup.
