Ok, so I am fairly new to FreeBSD. I'm running 5.4-CURRENT. Since I have a broadcom chipset that doesn't have an Open Source driver, I am attempting to get it working with ndis. Currently I am getting stuck here. Obviously, ifconfig doesn't display the device.
ndis0: <Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card> mem 0xfaffc000-0xfaffdfff irq 18 at device 2.0 on pci2
ndis0: NDIS API version: 5.0
ndis0: NDIS ERROR: c000138d (unknown error)
ndis0: NDIS NUMERRORS: 1
ndis0: argptr: 0x104
ndis0: init handler failed
device_attach: ndis0 attach returned 6
I have basically followed the instructions as best I can from this website: http://nevixpain.ne.funpic.de/sites/5150howto.php
However, since it is in German, I could have had translations problems (at least we have google translate).
I have used the driver files he has on the site, and they seem to have compiled correctly. Am I missing something? Any commands you want for extra information, let me know, I'll be happy to provide them.
You are missing something alright - this project is for Linux only. What you need to go after is Project Evil/Ndisulator which is meant for FreeBSD.
