I've been trying to set up this USB wireless interface for a few days now. I've made some progress by referencing a youtube video
and another posting
The interface name is ra0. I'm able to connect to my wireless router without encryption. I'm now trying to use WEP. I modified my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf by adding
and then I run /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 ra0_restart. myWLAN_KEY is a string of hexadecimal characters. The output:
bash-4.1# /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 ra0_restart
Polling for DHCP server on interface ra0:
dhcpcd: version 5.2.11 starting
dhcpcd: ra0: broadcasting for a lease
dhcpcd: timed out
dhcpcd: allowing 8 seconds for IPv4LL timeout
dhcpcd: ra0: probing for an IPv4LL address
dhcpcd: ra0: checking for 169.254.47.157
dhcpcd: ra0: using IPv4LL address 169.254.47.157
dhcpcd: forked to background, child pid 5060
I've also attempted to connect using
iwconfig ra0 essid myESSID channel myChannel key "myKey"
I get no output, and when I run
ra0 is not associated with any ESSID.
I wish this would work as it does on Alien's page
, but I'm doing something wrong. Any help is appreciated.
