Subject:   bwi: no DS tssi no OFDM tssi
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

   I am attempting to get by broadcom wifi card up and running, am sick of
trying to get ndis working, and am attempting to use the bwi driver
(originating in dragonflyBSD). I'm hoping others here have tried to do the
same and have some pointers. I'm using 7.1-RELEASE (system/source are
in-sync) and my card is a BCM94306MP. My dmesg is posted below.

Bwi(4) is installed and it recognizes my card (*if_bwi_load-"YES"* is in my
/etc/rc.conf and *bwi_v3* and *if_bwi* are loaded). I can send a IP request
to my WEP encrypted access point. Yet, it doesn't get an offer and says that
*no DS tssi* and *no OFDM tssi* Being new to bwi(4) and have never seen
references to DS/OFDM tssi, I'm not sure what info to provide. My research
is not leading anywhere helpful.  Thanks.
