    480480
    481 Run the following command to add the new driver to the startup modules:
     481Reboot the machine:
     482{{{
     483# reboot
     484}}}
     485
     486Once the machine comes back up again run the following command to add the new driver to the startup modules:

    483488{{{
     
    485490}}}
    486491
    487 To check if above driver registered properly:
     492Check if the module loaded correctly:
     493
     494{{{
     495# lsmod | grep drxvi314
     496drxvi314              309219  0

     498
     499Check if above driver registered properly with the system:
    488500{{{
    489501# dmesg | grep usbbcm
     
    492504
    493505
    494 === 5. Reboot, Configure, and Verify ===
    495 
    496 Reboot the machine:
    497 {{{
    498 # reboot
    499 }}}
    500 
    501 After startup copy the following files with the commands:
    502 
    503 {{{
    504 # cp /usr/src/USB_350/Source/CSCM/BeceemCSCM/wimaxd.conf /etc
    505 # cp /lib/firmware/macxvi350.bin /lib/firmware/macxvi200.bin
    506 }}}
    507 
    508 In a another terminal window and tail the syslog file. This show the results wimax commands down below.
     506=== 5. Verify USB Dongle is Present in System and Configure Center Frequency ===
     507In a another terminal window, tail the syslog file. This will show the system messages for the wimax commands down below. This is for informational purpose.
    509508{{{
    510509# tail -f /var/log/syslog
    511510}}}
    512511
    513 Edit the new /etc/wimaxd.conf file as desired, the file is heavily commented and should be self explanatory. Make sure that the network's center frequency can be found in the CenterFrequencyMHz parameter of the config file, the GENI network center frequency (2590) is not one of the default frequencies. The firmware file is copied because the utilities expect that both the macxvi350.bin and macxvi200.bin will be present when utilities are run.
    514 
    515 Plug the dongle into a usb port and list the USB devices:
    516 
     512List the USB devices and verify if the Wimax adapter is present:
    517513{{{
    518514# lsusb
     
    527523
    528524One of the devices should include "Beceem Communications Inc." if the installation was successful. The Bus and Device number may be different.
     525
     526Copy the following files with the commands:
     527
     528{{{
     529# cp /usr/src/USB_350/Source/CSCM/BeceemCSCM/wimaxd.conf /etc
