Default WLAN

I have A-Link WL54USB WLAN devise: http://www.a-link.com/WL54USB.html

"WL54USB is supported by FreeBSD 7.0 or later "

Code:
# uname -v
FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE 

# cat /var/log/messages
Feb  4 15:25:55 bsd kernel: ugen0: at uhub4 port 7 (addr 3) disconnected
Feb  4 15:25:55 bsd kernel: ugen0: detached
Feb  4 15:47:17 bsd kernel: ugen0: <ZyDAS USB2.0 WLAN, class 255/255, rev 2.00/48.10, addr 3> on uhub4
Feb  4 15:47:17 bsd root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x0ace product 0x1215 bus uhub4
So, how to make it work?
I have a static IP for wlan, and connection shold be always up.

First, i'd recommend reading the manpage for setting up a new NIC
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...ork-setup.html

And to begin you need to find the right driver..
from ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/re...E/HARDWARE.TXT:
Quote:
[i386,amd64] The ral(4) driver supports PCI/CardBus wireless
adapters based on the Ralink Technology RT2500, RT2501, and RT2600
chipsets, including:

* A-Link WL54H

* A-Link WL54PC
This driver may not provide support for your WL54USB chipset and if so there may be an appropriate driver included on the CD with your chipset. Once it shows up in ifconfig you can configure the network settings. Good luck.

Edit: Fixed link

That card may work with zyd(4) driver
# kldload if_zyd should do the trick.

If not, you may ask developers on freebsd questions mailing lists does zyd(4) supports your device.

Last approach would by to try new ndisulator support for usb devices available in FreeBSD CURRENT 8.0
