First of all, I'm new to both FreeBSD and wireless networking.
I need to connect to a wireless network, of which I know the
name and a password. I guess I want FreeBSD to try to connect
automagically at startup, or if it's a fairly simple procedure
I can do it manually, when I need to.
I've installed the iwi-firmware port, and loaded the if_iwi
module into the kernel:
That can be done automatically from /etc/rc.conf, right?
Can someone guide me through the rest of the process? I'm
really confused by http://www.yqcomputer.com/
It doesn't explain anything, from a newbie perspective.
If the next step is to enable my radio transmitter, I can
already say that I can't do it, so I hope it's done when
needed: "On some laptops, turning the interface up with
ifconfig or dhclient can automatically switch the radio ON."
