Bug #1148

Updated by tuxillo over 7 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
