NAME


rwd - Ralink RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661 IEEE802.11b/g wireless network driver

DESCRIPTION


The rwd IEEE802.11b/g wireless network driver is a multithreaded,
loadable, clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting Ralink
RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661 IEEE802.11b/g wireless network driver.

CONFIGURATION


The rwd 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. You can perform configuration and
administration tasks using the dladm(8)and wificonfig(8) utilities.
