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
# less /etc/hostname.ath0
ath0 at pci1 dev 10 function 0 "Atheros AR5212" rev 0x01: irq 11
ath0: AR5213 5.6 phy 4.1 rf5111 1.7 rf2111 2.3, FCC2A*, address 00:09:5b:c7:13:21
# ifconfig ath0

Lemme know if you wanted anything more.
Thanks for any help or suggestions in advance!
P.S - Not fussed about security yet, just want to get it connecting first.
