Description

Hi,

Today I tried a fresh install from DragonFlyBSD 1.7.0 (29/07/2006)

But my WiFi card isn't working because it seems it's not correctly
recognize if I'm not mistaking.
So at the first insert it got attached as a 3Com like card and at the
second try it got attached as ral but with a MAC address really wrong
(ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff).

I don't know what is really wrong.

All of this are made on my Dell laptop Inspiron 8200 and using a Asus
WL-107g with ral chipset.

Regards,
Jonathan

First try turning off ACPI, if it still does not work then please try:
http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~sephe/cbb-may-21.diff

Please post the output of `vmstat -i' before and after patching, if possible.
Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks the patch did it and my wifi card is working now BTW all
were made without ACPI.

I've attached the vmstat output you wanted.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Jonathan
