Bug #1148

Updated by tuxillo about 5 years ago

Hi,



I have a mini-PCI wireless network adapter on my laptop that wasn't

detected on DragonFly 2.0.0 during installation. Since it wasn't

detected, what I did is performing the steps in the

bwi(4) manual http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=bwi&section=ANY

and download the firmware at

http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~sephe/bwi/v3.tbz. Now, the driver were

detected (Broadcom BCM4311) but seems not functional. It doesn't show

up after invoking ifconfig. Below is the dmesg output:



device_probe_and_attach: bwi0 attach returned 6

Preloaded elf module "/modules/if_bwi.ko" at 0xc07b93c8.

bwi0: <Broadcom BCM4311 802.11 Wireless Lan> mem 0x31300000-0x31303fff

irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1

bwi0: BBP: id 0x4311, rev 0x2, pkg 0

bwi0: MAC rev 13 is not supported

bwi0: no MAC was found



And as I try looking at the /usr/src/sys/dev/netif/bwi/if_bwi.c code,

BCM4311 is part of the supported device



{ PCI_VENDOR_BROADCOM, PCI_PRODUCT_BROADCOM_BCM4311,

"Broadcom BCM4311 802.11 Wireless Lan" },



Thanks,

Archimedes
