To use them, add one of the following to your kernel config: It requires a Macintosh running Mac OS 8. In theory, there is no reason why the card could not be configured as a true access point. To determine if your network connection between your wireless card and a base station is enabled, check ifconfig 8 output, status should be “active” there. This means acting as a gateway between clients which do not communicate directly. Apple provide software for setting up an Apple Airport Base Station.

In one case this range may not work for you!
These values may not work for you! The interface should behave more or less like an ethernet interface.
In one case, the following configuration was used:. Assuming that the defaults are correct for your network, you should see “Current netname” or SSID change to reflect the name of the wireless network which has been set in the access point your card is communicating with.
Using WaveLAN IEEE under NetBSD
To determine if your network connection between your wireless card and a base station is enabled, check ifconfig 8 output, status should be “active” there. Remember, these values are probably not right for you!! In order to do this, use ” mediaopt hostap ” to ifconfig 8: Comments, additions, and corrections welcome.
See apmd 8 for details Here’s some quick-and-dirty scripts to get you going: This means acting as a gateway between clients which do not communicate directly.
Using WaveLAN IEEE under NetBSD
If in doubt, please refer to the documentation waevlan/ieee came with your card or access point. On certain machines the wi will appear to work until traffic is actually sent, at which point it will lock the entire machine. Assuming you have APM configured correctly, you should see the card go into power-saving mode when you disconnect the mains, and return to normal usage when it’s plugged back in!
Acting as an access point In theory, there is no reason why the card could not be configured as a wavekan/ieee access point. Once you have good communication with the base station or other ad-hoc device, you should configure the wireless network interface just like you would any other network interface. This document describes how to configure and troubleshoot IEEE If there is no change, you may need to adjust the channel your card is communicating on, using lucebt ifconfig ath0 chan XX ” for channel XX.
If you need to change this, use the ifconfig 8 “ssid” keyword or “nwid”, if you are on NetBSD 1.
WaveLAN – Wikipedia
Make sure that the channel you select is the same channel your access point or the other card in an ad-hoc network is on. Apple provide software for setting up an Apple Airport Base Station. A number of useful tools for IEEE Assuming you haven’t changed anything yet, use ifconfig 8 and wiconfig 8 to show the card’s current configuration.
To use them, add one of the following to your kernel config:.
WEP encryption can be enabled using ” ifconfig nwkey ” with a number of options, see ifconfig 8 for more information. Most of the network card’s parameters can be changed using ifconfig 8 and wiconfig 8 deprecatedin NetBSD 3. Using the network Once you’ve booted a kernel with a In particular, you may need to tweak the iomem and possibly iosize parameters of the pcic 4 device. To find the correct value for your system, you need to either consult documentation if you can find itor write down every single range used by every single device under Windows, and pick a range that appears empty.
Use ifconfig 8dhclient 8 or whatever you normally use. Tran’s web page on how to build a wireless In theory, there is no reason why the card could not be configured as a true access point.
The number of available channels depends on your country, This is a common problem with laptops; documentation luceng somewhat sparse, and NetBSD isn’t very good yet at all forms of autodetection. On this particular system, many addresses were tried for iomem without luck. The ‘resources’ tab of each device in the “Device Manager”.
