NAME


rtw - RealTek 8180L 802.11b Wireless NIC driver

DESCRIPTION


The rtw 802.11b wireless NIC driver is a multi-threaded, loadable,
clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting RealTek 8180L chipset-
based NIC's.

CONFIGURATION


The rtw 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
default is 11.


The rtw driver supports only BSS networks (also known as "ap" or
