    Wireless OpenBSD

    Hey, i currently have an Atheros AR5005G wireless card running on OpenBSD4.0
    but it doesnt seem to get detected.

    I was wondering if anyone could point me to a good tutorial on how to set up openbsd wireleslly or could guide me through the process?

    Cheers, Ritalin.

    I keep getting this error message when trying to bring up the ath0 interface.

    ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: Device not found

    Do i need to recompile the openbsd kernel with the drivers needed for my card?

    Cheers

    You'll find better help over at the openbsd mailing list: misc@openbsd.org

    DO however:
    1- make sure to search the archives (http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openbsd-misc) before posting
    2- make sure to include a full 'dmesg' output when you post, along with all diagnostics you have done so far...
