Similarly, if I am correct FUKAUMI Naoki has ported a number of drivers
from OpenBSD over to NetBSD, as published here:
I am currently testing run(4), as seen here:
/netbsd: run0 at uhub4 port 2
/netbsd: run0: Ralink 802.11 g WLAN, rev 2.00/1.01, addr 2
/netbsd: run0: MAC/BBP RT3070 (rev 0x0201), RF RT2020 (MIMO 1T1R), address
/netbsd: run0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
/netbsd: run0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps
24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
I am experiencing a few issues:
- occasional reboots
- unable to get traffic going after being associated to some networks
But otherwise I have been able to scan some networks using kismet
(probably couldn't catch all the ones available though), and then
associate with a few and actually use them.
I haven't tested WPA or WEP-based networks yet.
