Problem installing and configuring Broadcom BCM4312 LP-PHY

Post by aigon89 » Sun Mar 09, 2014 9:00 am

Hi everyone,

It's my first time here so please be gentle.

I'm coming from Linux world and it's also my first time in BSD world.

I've used Lubuntu previously on this PC and managed to get the Wireless adapter working but I've found that here on BSD it's quite more difficult.

I've managed to install bwm module following every step on FreeBSD docs and the system recognizes the Wireless adapter and shows it as bwn0:

Code: Select all

bwn0: flags=8803<UP,BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290
	ether 00:24:2c:0e:c5:8a
	nd6 options=29<PERFORMNUD,IFDISABLED,AUTO_LINKLOCAL>
	media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11b
	status: associated
Then, the FreeBSD guide doc asks to run:

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev bwn0
Which works too, creating a new interface called wlan0 as expected. Then, I want to list the networks around here running:

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
At this point, the Wireless LED light doesn't turn on, but overlooking at this, I run:

Code: Select all

sudo ifconfig wlan0 list scan
But nothing happens.
Here are the contents of /etc/rc.conf and /boot/loader.conf:
/boot/loader.conf

Code: Select all

                            
if_bwn_load="YES"
bwn_v4_lp_ucode="YES"
wlan_wep_load="YES"
wlan_ccmp_load="YES"
wlan_tkip_load="YES"
wlan_scan_ap_load="YES"
wlan_scan_sta_load="YES"
/etc/rc.conf

Code: Select all

# Network interface.
ifconfig_ale0="DHCP"
# Power saver.
powerd_enable="YES"
powerd_flags="-a adp -b adp"

# DEVFS rules
devfs_system_ruleset="system"

# All Gnome need. 
cupsd_enable="YES"
gdm_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
linux_enable="YES"

gdm_lang="es_ES.UTF-8"
keymap="spanish.iso"
hostname="netbook"
Thanks and best regards to everyone!

Added, but the result is the same.

I'll keep investigating.

Thanks!
