Manually connecting wifi Atheros AR9565, booted GBSD11.1 USB

Postby wb7odyfred » Mon Dec 11, 2017 7:23 am

SOLVED: Booting GhostBSD 11.1 from USB flash to wifi connect to my TMobile Android Mobile Hostspot.

Here are the manual steps I performed in a terminal and files I edited.
Code: Select all
vi /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

Code: Select all
network={
  # my Tmobile android Mobile Hotspot
  ssid="ES_32439"
  psk="42600000"
  key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}


Code: Select all
vi /etc/rc.conf

edit the last two lines of this file /etc/rc.conf
Code: Select all
wlans_ath0="wlan0"
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA channel 8 DHCP"


Change the channel and the ssid to your particular setup
Code: Select all
ifconfig wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 channel 8 ssid ES_32439
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan0


Code: Select all
service routing restart
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
dhclient wlan0
netstat -r
ping -c 3 he.net
