elderKHey guys, I was wondering if anyone here has an iwlwifi wireless card?03:08
elderKI'm having an interesting issue with VirtualBox which seems to stem from this wifi card...03:08
elderKThe ioctl to retrieve the link speed fails for this card - operation not supported :|03:08
elderKEven if I run it as root, same issue.03:09
elderKI try using ethtool, too, directly.03:09
elderKBut ethtool don't display speeds...03:09
Wildefyrlooks like some kind of permissions issue to me :/03:10
elderKI'm using VBox 5x, not 4x, if that counts.03:10
WildefyrDon't have any exp. with vbox sadly03:10
elderKI find it strange that ethtool wlan0 doens't list link speed.03:11
elderKIs that normal?03:11
Wildefyrnetworking tools on linux are a mess in my eyes03:12
Wildefyrso many random tools03:12
elderKIt's frustrating.03:14
elderKI really don't know what else to try :(03:17
Wildefyrstick around03:20
Wildefyrone of the true unix wizards might be able to help03:20
elderKI hope so.03:20
elderKI'm going to rebuild iwlwifi as a module.03:25
elderKWireless works just fine in normal use.03:25
elderKBut who knows, maybe the firmware I've included is slightly wrong...03:25

DaVincidid you check your messages for the firmware messages?03:35
Wildefyrhow do people expect an answer when they do not idle03:36
elderKI'm here.03:36
elderKAnd yes.03:36
elderKIt tries to load a series of firmware, fails, then finds one.03:36
DaVincieverything succesful?03:36
elderKmodinfo gives me some firmware names.03:37
elderKSo I'm going to try and use one ofhte names itmentions03:37
DaVincihow would you use it?03:37
DaVincithe module calls out for the right firmware when it's loaded.03:37
elderKFind the relevant firmware file, cram it into /lib/firmware03:37
DaVinciit needs to be available at the time of firmware loading.03:37
elderK:) Hopefully I'll be back in a second.03:38
DaVinciI think all the intel firmware's are in the standard firmware git03:40
elderKBut ethtool still doesn't show you relevant stuff :(03:42
elderKI'm having an issue where VBox is telling meit can't determine the link speed for wlan0.03:42
elderKethtool wlan0 never shows me any real information other than there's a carrier.03:42
elderKAnyway, that seems to kill networking inside VBox guests.03:44
DaVinciI don't have that much experience bonding vbox vm's to an wireless adapter inside linux, which sounds like the challange your dealing with.03:45
elderKI guess, yeah.03:46
elderKVBox sets up an internal nat.03:46
DaVinciwhat about bridged?03:46
elderKI'll try I guess.03:48
elderKI don't really want the VMs to be on the network proper.03:48
elderKBut that does the trick03:49
elderKThanks DaVinci03:49
elderKI guess it'll do as a workaround for now.03:49
DaVinci....You could make another VM that is a router like pfsense, then bond your testing vm to the router vm and give the router vm 2 adapters bonding each to one of the two networks.03:50
DaVinciset up routing, and Bob's your uncle03:51
elderKBut that's a hell of a lot more effort than it should be :P03:51
elderKNAT just used to work03:51
DaVincipfsense installs real nice03:52
DaVincithey even have premade vm's03:52
jaegeryeah, pfsense is great03:52
jaegerbeen using it for years03:52 get a crazy amount of control over your routing.03:52
elderKRight. Time to image the VMs :)03:55
elderKThanks for your help guys, I really appreciate it.03:55
*** elderK has quit IRC03:56
jaegermost wireless adapters can't do bridging properly for some reason03:57
