Manually connecting wifi Atheros AR9565, booted GBSD11.1 USB

Post by 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
