2 USING IF_NDIS WITH WINDOWS DEVICE DRIVERS
3
4(1) Locate the .INF and .SYS file for the windows driver. I have no idea
5 where the official location for these things are but I found the one
6 for the Centrino 2200 chipset (for my Sony TR3A) here:

8 http://news.gw.com/freebsd.hardware/4894

11 My MD5 (intel_2200_wlan.zip) = 281812933642f3f2fd54710ee7bba2d4
12 This is unofficial.
13
14(2) Unpack the files into a temporary directory, then copy the appropriate
15 .INF and .SYS file to /usr/local/modules/if_ndis.
16
17 mkdir -p /usr/local/modules/if_ndis
18 cp ....
19
20(3) Generate a driver module header file using ndiscvt then build and
21 install the module. The object directory in which you store the
22 header file should match what make obj creates. If your DFly sources
23 are in /usr/src then the example below will work.
24
25 # cd /usr/src/sys/dev/netif/ndis
26 # make obj
27 # make clean
28 # ndiscvt -i /usr/local/modules/if_ndis/w22n51.INF -s /usr/local/modules/if_ndis/w22n51.sys -o /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/dev/netif/ndis/ndis_driver_data.h
29 # make
30 # make install
31
32(4) Load all required modules into the running kernel:
33
34 # kldload /modules/wlan.ko
35 # kldload /modules/ndis.ko
36 # kldload /modules/if_ndis.ko
37
38 You should get something similar to the following system console
39 messages:
40
41 ndis0: NDIS API version: 5.1

46(5) Bring the interface up and associate the SSID. If you aren't sure
b42abb74 47 what your basestation id is you can use 'ifconfig -v ndis0 list scan' to
63379984

48 list available ssid's.
49
50 # ifconfig ndis0 up
b42abb74 51 # ifconfig -v ndis0 list scan
63379984
MD
52 # ifconfig ssid "your_basestation_id"
53
54(6) Ifconfig should show the interface up and associated. Run dhclient
55 or ifconfig your IP address.
56
57 # ifconfig ndis0
58 [should show the interface up and associated]
59 # dhclient ndis0
