Subject:   wireless nic - access point
Message-ID:  <>

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

I installed a D-Link WDA-2320 (Atheros chipset) wireless nic on my FreeBSD
7.1 system. I configured it as an access point. I read many posts on that
topic and I am confused whether I need to bridge the wireless network to the
wired network or just let the FreeBSD gateway to manage that.

So far, I can connect from a wireless client to the FreeBSD Access Point (I
can ping any machines on the wired network) but I cannot go beyond that and
I would be very pleased if someone would explain what to do in terms of
ipfilter NAT or routing to access the Internet from a wireless client. I
have 3 network cards: ath0 (wireless -, bge0 (wired-, bce0 (Internet - DHCP). The wired network is behind an
ipfilter firewall ( and wired computers are NATed.

Thanks for any hints!
