NAME


atu - Atmel AT76C50x USB IEEE 802.11b Wireless Device Driver

DESCRIPTION


The atu 802.11b wireless driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable,
GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting the Atmel AT76C50x chipset-based
wireless devices.

Configuration


The atu driver performs auto-negotiation to determine the data rate and
mode. Supported 802.11b data rates are 1, 2, 5.5, and 11 Mbits/sec.


The atu driver supports only BSS networks (also known as ap or
infrastructure networks).


open (or open-system) and shared key authentication modes are supported.
Encryption types WEP40 and WEP104 are supported.
