Linksys WMP54G/ Ralink RT2561 Wireless help????
This is sort of a continuation thread for me in the quest for bottleneck-free internet speed...
...As you can see, my patience is wearing incredibly thin with this and so I've decided move forward with an alternate option,
So I have, and since I have wiped my temper slate clean I prepare myself for a whole new set of obstacles :p. So without further ado, heres my status...
I have installed a Linksys WMP54G v4 wireless PCI card in an available PCI slot on my Dell Dimension 4500. After doing a litte mandatory research I found that the driver already comes with the kernel in FreeBSD 6.1 RELEASE. So I got rid of everything that I didn't need and recompiled my kernel with these options left in;
Of course I then ran through the motions (make, build..., install..., reboot).
However when I ran "ifconfig ral0" I got this;
So, I then checked "dmesg | grep ral0" and I got nothing (I also tried a different number with the said device i.e. ral1, ral2, etc.., no dice).
ifconfig: interface ral0 does not exist
Then I figured maybe it needs to be loaded as a module, although unlikely, I tried it anyway but all I got there was;
So I checked "pciconf -lv" to make sure the card is seen;
module_register: module pccard/ral already exists!
So that pretty much brings me up to date. Now my question, what the hell am I doing wrong or, what have I missed???
vendor = `Ralink Technology, Corp`
class = network
none2@pci2:1:0: class=0x028000 card=0x00551737 chip=0x03011814 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
Your help is always appreciated, thanx :cool:
