Thread: unknown interface pan0 created

  1. #1

    Exclamation unknown interface pan0 created

    I have a pan0 interface created for absolutely no reason.
    I can understand my iwl4965agn wireless card requires a wmaster0-00 interface, but pan0 is just a complete unknown.

    Output from ifconfig:

    Other than the already created interfaces, I can't wrap my head around the existance of pan0!

    I also found this!

    kernel: pan0: Dropping NETIF_F_UFO since no NETIF_F_HW_CSUM feature.

    Im running SuSE 11.0 KDE with a 2.6.25.5-1.1 kernel.

    Any help is much appreciated

    Default Re: unknown interface pan0 created

    Does your box/laptop have a builtin Bluetooth adapter?
    [pan0 is typically a bluetooth device. Look in '/var/log/messages' file for 'pan'. ]
