iwlwifi and FreeBSD

··121 words·1 min

Finally. if_iwlwifi works (sometimes) on my WiFi network at home!

Those are the relevant parts in my /etc/rc.conf configuration file.

static_routes="thor_lan thor_wifi"

create_args_wlan0="country AT metric 100 ssid AP1"
ifconfig_wlan0="WPA SYNCDHCP"

create_args_wlan1="country AT ssid AP2"
ifconfig_wlan1="WPA SYNCDHCP defaultif"

In fact I only made a single change to the suggested options from the handbook.

create_args_wlan0="regdomain ETSI2 country AT"

As you can see, I removed the redgomain ETSI2 part. I’ve also tried ETSI so far but that also didn’t work.

This works with a Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 card. I haven’t tried this with the Intel AX200(NGW) card that originally was built into my laptop.

This works for me sometimes. But random panics still occur!
