If you install Debian Wheezy on macbook you will probably face the problem that the wifi connection works but sometimes it simply drops. I didn’t investigate too much on causes because it turned out I was using a old driver: b43, b44 which have been replaced by the newer module “wl”.
This because the Macbook pro uses a BCM4322 s you can see from the output of lspcs
As title says, here i store how i managed to get a fixed ip address on the wireless lan network interface from shell or command line.
It’s very easy and usefull in a number of situations. For example this makes part of another my projects about remoting audio of my laptop using air-whatever and the raspberry as server, but i will describe this soon, in my next posts.
