NAME


iwh - Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100/5300 Driver

DESCRIPTION


The iwh 802.11a/g/n wireless NIC driver is a multi-threaded, loadable,
clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting the Intel Shirley Peak
WiFi chipset-based NIC's. Driver functions include controller
initialization, wireless 802.11 infrastructure network connection, WEP
and frame transmit and receive.

CONFIGURATION


The iwh 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.
Supported 802.11g data rates are 1, 2, 5.5, 11, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48
and 54 Mbits/sec.
