Special Forums IP Networking BELKIN 'F5D5020' 16bit PCMCIA - FreeBSD HOWTO
# 1  
Old 09-23-2002

Hey all,

I've bought a few bits from Belkin who seem quite happy to support FreeBSD! Last time I bought a UPS from them and it's still going well Smilie

I saw this on their website that the 16bit PCMCIA card was supported under FreeBSD:

I went to my local "PC World" and bought it. I turned on my FreeBSD 4.6.2 Laptop, stuck the card in, the card was "sensed" as inserted, but nothing in "ifconfig" - ARRRGGHHH!!!

Anyway, after much trying, I got it working. Here's the solution for your /etc/pccard.conf file should you need it:

# ----------------------------------------------------------
# Belkin F5D5020
card "Belkin" "F5D5020-PCMCIA-Network-Card"
config auto "ed" ? 0x10
insert /etc/pccard_ether $device start
remove /etc/pccard_ether $device stop
# ----------------------------------------------------------

Hope this helps any of you that decide to buy it! Smilie

I'm happy with it!
