Re: Just obtained a wireless NIC
Thanks for the reply. I got it working.
In regards to rc.conf are there any examples on how to put SSID, WEP
key, etc into rc.conf?
Im actually using wpa_supplicant and it was a breeze. Perhaps the
simplest way to make wpa_supplicant daemon start during boot would be by
putting it in rc.local I guess? Though a standalone rc script would be
nice. Are there any plans?
Another quesiton. Is it possible to get above 48Mbps? This card should
do 54Mbps I believe.
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (OFDM/48Mbps)

It uses the acx111 chip. I read the acx, acxcontrol manpages but some
stuff I dont understand.
1) Loading firmware produces no output
After load the firmware, run:
ifconfig acx0 up
You can scan APs by:
ifconfig acx0 scan
(given you have run ifconfig acx0 up)
2) How to change channels?
ifconfig acx0 channel x
normally it is not necessary.
3) Where does all the configuration go so its saved for next reboot?
put it in /etc/rc.conf
