Re: How do I set up WIFI to start automatically

I had to re-install GhostBSD and perhaps it was a blessing.....followed the steps suggested by you and this resulted in success! .....using the Edimax USB not BCM4312 I couldn't say what went wrong previously but perhaps a 'Typo' in some entry.....It now works at 'boot-up' I took the same info to Tr...

Re: How do I set up WIFI to start automatically

...wish I could but Ghost has now decided to boot to an error message....'bwn0:failed to switch channel'. This message just repeats itself endlessly. (will probably have to re-install) .....I have also been referencing Lumina/Trident in an attempt to cross reference my BSD learning experience but af...

Re: How do I set up WIFI to start automatically

It has been a week since you sent all this valuable info.....and I have read through it and tried much of it but I can't say I have had any success! I guess I have learned a lot but no automatic wifi yet. I have found that BCM4312 has many different configurations and mine isn't one that has a strai...

Ghost Keeps Generating Error bwn: failed to switch etc

It's enough to drive a man to linux......fired up GhostBSD this morning to find that.... bwn:failed to switch channel !!!! I have seen this before during the boot process but the process ultimately boots to the desktop..........today, the warning just goes on and on...indefinitely. The only thing I ...

Re: I connect to WiFi, but no internet?

Like you, I am not a Geek either...........I have had a similar result but when I entered the following, I got a connection.... sudo /etc/rc.d/netif restart sudo /etc/rc.d/routing restart dhclient wlan0 or 1, whatever yours is ....the icon shows and Internet/wifi is OK but tends to be a bit flaky......

Re: How do I set up WIFI to start automatically

Thanks ....Fred, I have already read thru what you have set out..........I do have have a result but it is pretty messy. I have wifi but it needs manual input to get it up.....and then it is not inclined to stay if it goes into sleep mode.

I guess having two wifi devices may be a problem.....dunno?

Re: Firefox crashes on GhostBSD 18.10

.....sounds like an improvement.......have you let it suspend through lack of use and activated it again?.....that's one of the occasions when I lose the browser!

....I'm really thinking I have a networking problem.

Re: How do I set up WIFI to start automatically

Wlan0 is bcm4312 (802.11b/g LP-PHY) which has been difficult to set up in BSD................but my initial 'boot-up' of a 'live' usb installer dongle on a desktop without a wired connection showed that wifi was working with the Edimax dongle fitted and all I had to do was put in a password! Things ...

Re: Firefox crashes on GhostBSD 18.10

I get Firefox 'failing to respond' in 18.12 but I am also having problems with WIFI so it may be that rather than the browser.

.......be good to hear how things go for you.
