NAME


ral - Ralink RT2500 802.11b/g Wireless driver

DESCRIPTION


The ral 802.11b/g wireless NIC driver is a multi-threaded, loadable,
clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting Ralink RT2500 chipset-
based NIC's.

CONFIGURATION


The ral 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, 6, 9, 11, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48
and 54 Mbits/sec. The ral driver supports only BSS networks (also known
as "ap" or "infrastructure" networks) and "open"(or "open-system") or
"shared system" authentication.
