Hi!
Its seems there are missing modules.
How can i install this module and where can i download?



pfSense 2.0-RC3-nanobsd (i386) on pfsense
ASUS WL-120 V2   BCM4318   PCI

siba_bwn0: <Broadcom BCM4318 802.11b/g Wireless> mem 0xe0080000-0xe0081fff irq 9 at device 12.0 on pci0
bwn0 on siba_bwn0
bwn0: WLAN (chipid 0x4318 rev 9) PHY (analog 3 type 2 rev 7) RADIO (manuf 0x17f ver 0x2050 rev 8)
bwn0: DMA (32 bits)
bwn0: [FILTER]


Enter an option: bwn0: need multicast update callback
bwn_v4_ucode5: could not load firmware image, error 2
bwn0: the fw file(bwn_v4_ucode5) not found
bwn-open_v4_ucode5: could not load firmware image, error 2

Enter an option: bwn0: need multicast update callback
bwn_v4_ucode5: could not load firmware image, error 2
bwn0: the fw file(bwn_v4_ucode5) not found
bwn-open_v4_ucode5: could not load firmware image, error 2
bwn0: the fw file(bwn-open_v4_ucode5) not found
This much suggests the bwn driver needs the firmware file bwn_v4_ucode5 loaded but the firmware file is not present on your system.

The bwn man page says the FreeBSD port ports/net/bwn-firmware-kmod needs to be installed but this doesn't seem to exist as a package so must be built on a FreeBSD system. I'll look into it.

Here is the first of two firmware files I built on FreeBSD 8.1. Remove the .png extension from the filename before copying to /boot/kernel on the target system.

I expect you will need to add
Quote
bwn_v4_ucode_load="YES"
to /boot/loader.conf.local (create file if it doesn't already exist) to get the firmware loaded and available to the kernel on startup.

I don't have any Broadcom WiFi devices so can't test this.

I found this  /boot/modules/bwi_v3_ucode.ko, looks like the firmware is there

I have the same issue with a BCM4306

The firmware cannot be loaded (firmware table is full)
Seems that this patch should be applied  ....

http://fxr.watson.org/fxr/ident?im=10;i=FIRMWARE_MAX
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/svn-src-all/2010-March/021027.html

Where can I find an How to patch and compile my own kernel for pfsense 2.0 ?

Not sure those instructions are for a pfsense 2.0 ?  http://devwiki.pfsense.org/DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso ?


Thanks in advance
