Waveoan order to do this, use ” mediaopt hostap ” to ifconfig 8: This eventually became known as Wi-Fi. Assuming you haven’t changed anything yet, use ifconfig 8 and wiconfig 8 to show the card’s current configuration.
If you need to change this, use the ifconfig 8 “ssid” keyword or “nwid”, if you are on NetBSD 1. You could easily find s of wireless cards attached to every single laptop that was purchased. On this particular system, many addresses were tried for iomem without luck.
