Getting WiFi to Work

Post by ilikesci » Mon Jun 25, 2018 9:34 pm

Hello,
I am trying to get my wireless internet working. Some of my information is I have GhostBSD installed on a laptop with builtin wifi. The information it gave me was that it is a RTL8188EE wifi card. Here is what the information told me to do.

kldload if_rtwn if_rtwn_pci

and it only loads if_rtwn and not if_rtwn_pci.

ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev rtwn0

and gets the following:

ifconfig: SIOCIFCREATE2: device not configured

If anybody can help me I would appreciate it.
Thank You,
Micah

Hi.
It may be that the card is not supported under FreeBSD.
You can try also

if_urtwn_load="YES"
legal.realtek.license_ack=1

in loader.conf . This may make it work.
Good luck.
