devn-orinoco.so

Driver for the Lucent ORiNOCO wireless Ethernet controller

Syntax:

io-net -d orinoco [option[,option ...]] ... &

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


Note: Use commas (,), not spaces, to separate the options.

channel=num
The 802.11 channel to use. Scans in normal mode.
default_key=[1-4]
Which of the keys given by the key[1-4] options to use for the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm, which is part of the 802.11 standard.
key[1-4]=KEY
Set up one of the four default WEP keys, where KEY is a hex string of 10 (64- or 40-bit WEP) or 26 (128-bit WEP) characters. For example, key1=0x0102030405.
ioport=port
The I/O port of the interface.
irq=num
The IRQ of the interface.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
The MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
mode=mode
The 802.11 network mode: normal (access point) or adhoc. Default is normal (access point).
network=name
The 802.11 network name to use (SSID). Scans in normal mode.
rts_thresh=num
Set the RTS threshold. Should be the same as the access point or the other cards being used in the network. The default is 2347.
ssid=name
The 802.11 network name to use (SSID). Scans in normal mode.
station=name
The Lucent station name for this machine. Defaults to QNX6.
verbose
verbose=num
Be verbose. Specify num for more verbosity (num can be 1-4, the higher the number, the more detailed the output). The output goes to slogger; invoke sloginfo to view it.

Description:

The devn-orinoco.so driver controls the Lucent ORiNOCO wireless Ethernet controller.

Examples:

Start io-net using the ORiNOCO driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d orinoco channel=10,network=work -p tcpip

Start io-net using the ORiNOCO driver and 64-bit WEP:

io-net -d orinoco key1=0x0102030405,default_key=1,network=home

Files:

/dev/io-net
The directory where, by default, drivers and protocol modules add entries. For more information, the documentation for io-net.
