devn-prism.so

Driver for the PRISM-based wireless Ethernet controller

Syntax:

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

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

ssid=name
802.11 network name to use. Scans in bss mode.
channel=num
802.11 channel to use. Scans in bss mode.
mode=mode
802.11 network mode: pseudo is card-specific and will probably not work between vendors.
Default is bss (access point).
station=name
Station name for this machine. Defaults to the value of CS_HOSTNAME.
authtype=type
Authentication scheme to use: open (default) or sharedkey.
default_key=[1-4]
Which of the keys given by key[1-4] to use for the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm.
key[1-4]=KEY
Set up one of the four default WEP keys. The KEY is a hex string of 10 (64/40-bit WEP) or 26 (128-bit WEP) characters. For example, key1=0x0102030405. You can also specify this key as an ASCII string.
ioport=port
I/O port of the interface.
irq=num
IRQ of the interface.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
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-prism.so driver controls the PRISM-based wireless Ethernet controller.

Examples:

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

io-net -d prism channel=10,ssid=work -p tcpip

Start io-net, using the PRISM driver with a 64-bit WEP key:

io-net -d prism key1=0x0102030405,default_key=1,\
ssid=home,authtype=sharedkey

Files:

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