NAME


arn - Atheros AR9280/9281/9285 IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network device

DESCRIPTION


The arn IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n wireless driver is a loadable, clonable,
GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting Atheros AR9280/9281/9285 IEEE802.11
a/b/g/n wireless network device.

Configuration


The arn driver performs auto-negotiation to determine the data rate and
mode. The driver supports only BSS networks (also known as ap or
infrastructure networks) and open(or open-system) or shared system
authentication. For wireless security, WEP encryption, WPA-PSK, and
WPA2-PSK are currently supported. Configuration and administration tasks
can be performed with the dladm(8) and wificonfig(8) utilities.
