openBSD Wifi Access point not advertising
Been a while since I been on here but i have finally graduated so I hope to get a few more home project pumping. This being the first :)
I am trying to build an openBSD wireless access point, drawing inspiration from a couple of online tutes including the following:
My problem however, is that the wireless is not advertising the ssid and I can't seem to connect manually. My configuration seems to be working properly, and setting up the interface right but that's all, it's not very useful though. I can't connect to it manually (says it can't find the network) and it's definitely not broadcasting the SSID
I have attached a dmesg and ifconfig, and also my /etc/hostname.ath0 file hoping someone might be able to let me know where/if I have gone wrong.
# dmesg | grep ath
# ifconfig ath0
Thanks for any help or suggestions in advance!
P.S - Not fussed about security yet, just want to get it connecting first.
# uname -a
He he, Sweet!!!
Okay so i got it working with a little help from a BSD Guru at work who pointed me in a pretty simple direction :P which resulted in the command below.
# ifconfig ath0 media | grep hostap
Then it was just a matter of updating my /etc/hostname.ath0 according to one of the lines specified in the output of the above command resulting in the following /etc/hostname.ath0
# more /etc/hostname.ath0
From mode 11a to 11b, interesting.
