OPenBSD 4.9 i386, Asus EEE 701, no network

Rudolf Leitgeb
Hi folks,

I wanted to give OpenBSD a new try and installed it on my
Asus EEEPC 701. Install went well, but for some reason
the network interface lii0 reports "no carrier".

Since I have no network in the OpenBSD computer, please forgive
me for not going through the regular sendbug routine but
posting the bug report directly to this mailing list.

Just to make sure this is not a hardware problem: I test
booted Ubuntu 10.04.1 i386 desktop from CD ROM and network
was fully functional. I did not change anything in the hardware
between boots, and the network cable remained untouched.

Here is what I did after startup:

- log in as root
- type "ifconfig lii0 192.168.1.55"

Result:

- "ifconfig lii0" returns:
lii0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        lladdr <correct MAC address>
        priority: 0
        media: Ethernet autoselect (none)
        status: no carrier
        inet6 ....

- if I instruct ifconfig to use a particular media type, the media
line reflects this correctly, but the "status: no carrier" stays
the same.


Here are the lines /var/run/dmesg.log contains about the lii0 device:
lii0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0 "Attansic Technology L2" rev 0xa0: apic 1
int 17 (irq 11), address my MAC address>
atphy0 at lii0 phy1: F2 10/100 PHY, rev. 2


I hope this helps you, please contact me if you need further info
or if you want me to try some experiments.

Cheers,

Rudi

Here it comes, included in the body and as an attachment.

Did you up the interface?

Thanks a lot, Owain, that was the problem. Network fully

Having this exact same issue with EeePC 701 and OpenBSD 5.9. It uses the
lii0 driver. So far no luck with DHCP.

dmesg says about the driver,
lii0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0 "Attansic Technology L2" rev 0xa0 apic 1 int
17, address 00:1f:c6:d5:3c:80

ifconfig lii0 says,
lii0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
lladdr 00:1f:c6:d5:3c:80
priority: 0
media: Ethernet none

ifconfig lii0 up says nothing, same with ifconfig lii0 up scan

doing ifconfig lii0 nwid iPhone wpakey mypassword gives me an error,
ifconfig: SIOCS80211NWID: Inappropriate ioctl for device
ifconfig: SIOCS80211NWID: Inappropriate ioctl for device

doing dhclient lii0 says,
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 3
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 4
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 7
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 11
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 14
DHCPDISCOVER on lii0 - interval 14
No acceptable DHCPOFFERS received.

doing wpa_supplicant -i lii0 -c my_wpa_configuration_file says,
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1
lii0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=1 retry=1


I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, ref.

lii(4) is an Ethernet device driver, it is not wifi.

You're resurrecting a thread from 2011 about a version
that became unsupported in 2017.

I wanted to say the same thing. Try a supported version, 4.9 is not
supported anymore.

As others have already pointed out, this is the wired ethernet interface.

I vaguely remember at least some of the Eee models came with wifi built in.

Looking at the wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asus_Eee_PC I would
guess that ath(4) or possibly one of the several Ralink drivers (ral(4), rum(4),
run(4)) might be appropriate, *if* your unit has wifi (some came only with 3g
connectivity it seems).

That said, it's probably more useful to try with a supported version, meaning
at this point OpenBSD 6.4 or 6.3, and if you find that your unit does not have
wifi onboard, you could probably find a cheap USB wifi thing that recent OpenBSD
versions support.

Hi there,
I've one of those machines running some ancient version of  OpenBSD and I can
confirm the wired interface works.
For the wireless one, instead, try -current as other people already pointed out
or buy a cheap Intel wifi card and swap it out (I did this).
