_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-wireless-scan' md5='__failed__'
Wireless networks are identified by a Service Set Identifier (<acronym>SSID</acronym>), a short, unique name given to each network. <acronym>SSIDs</acronym> found during the scan are listed, followed by a description of the encryption types available for that network. If the desired <acronym>SSID</acronym> does not appear in the list, select <guibutton>[ Rescan ]</guibutton> to scan again. If the desired network still does not appear, check for problems with antenna connections or try moving the computer closer to the access point. Rescan after each change is made.
Choosing a Wireless Network
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-wireless-accesspoints' md5='__failed__'
Next, enter the encryption information for connecting to the selected wireless network. <acronym>WPA2</acronym> encryption is strongly recommended as older encryption types, like <acronym>WEP</acronym>, offer little security. If the network uses <acronym>WPA2</acronym>, input the password, also known as the Pre-Shared Key (<acronym>PSK</acronym>). For security reasons, the characters typed into the input box are displayed as asterisks.
WPA2 Setup
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-wireless-wpa2setup' md5='__failed__'
Next, choose whether or not an <acronym>IPv4</acronym> address should be configured on the Ethernet or wireless interface:
Choose <acronym>IPv4</acronym> Networking
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-ipv4' md5='__failed__'
There are two methods of <acronym>IPv4</acronym> configuration. <acronym>DHCP</acronym> will automatically configure the network interface correctly and should be used if the network provides a <acronym>DHCP</acronym> server. Otherwise, the addressing information needs to be input manually as a static configuration.
Do not enter random network information as it will not work. If a <acronym>DHCP</acronym> server is not available, obtain the information listed in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-collect-network-information"/> from the network administrator or Internet service provider.
If a <acronym>DHCP</acronym> server is available, select <guibutton>[ Yes ]</guibutton> in the next menu to automatically configure the network interface. The installer will appear to pause for a minute or so as it finds the <acronym>DHCP</acronym> server and obtains the addressing information for the system.
Choose <acronym>IPv4</acronym> <acronym>DHCP</acronym> Configuration
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-ipv4-dhcp' md5='__failed__'
If a <acronym>DHCP</acronym> server is not available, select <guibutton>[ No ]</guibutton> and input the following addressing information in this menu:
<acronym>IPv4</acronym> Static Configuration
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-ipv4-static' md5='__failed__'
<literal>IP Address</literal> - The <acronym>IPv4</acronym> address assigned to this computer. The address must be unique and not already in use by another piece of equipment on the local network.
<literal>Subnet Mask</literal> - The subnet mask for the network.
<literal>Default Router</literal> - The <acronym>IP</acronym> address of the network's default gateway.
The next screen will ask if the interface should be configured for <acronym>IPv6</acronym>. If <acronym>IPv6</acronym> is available and desired, choose <guibutton>[ Yes ]</guibutton> to select it.
Choose IPv6 Networking
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-ipv6' md5='__failed__'
<acronym>IPv6</acronym> also has two methods of configuration. StateLess Address AutoConfiguration (<acronym>SLAAC</acronym>) will automatically request the correct configuration information from a local router. Refer to <link xlink:href="http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4862">rfc4862</link> for more information. Static configuration requires manual entry of network information.
If an <acronym>IPv6</acronym> router is available, select <guibutton>[ Yes ]</guibutton> in the next menu to automatically configure the network interface. The installer will appear to pause for a minute or so as it finds the router and obtains the addressing information for the system.
Choose IPv6 SLAAC Configuration
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-slaac' md5='__failed__'
If an <acronym>IPv6</acronym> router is not available, select <guibutton>[ No ]</guibutton> and input the following addressing information in this menu:
IPv6 Static Configuration
