today i want to connect my little pc to my home network. i have installed openbsd to a 2gb compact flash (cf) and put it on a compact flash to ide 2.5 adapter. i have no monitor for the pc, but i do have another laptop with openbsd installed.
first i mounted the compactflash card in the openbsd laptop. i need to check my hardware first. from the documentation, mine is a RealTek 8139-based (rl), so i put dhcp inside this file:
i also have a usb wireless adapter, dlink dwl-g122, and it goes like this
a nice line inside hostname.rum0 looks like this
dhcp NONE NONE NONE nwkey mykey
put the cf back to the minidesktop, then i got network connection. i use netscan to find my little computer. alas, the wireless connection is unstable. low power,perhaps?
