NAME


uath - Atheros AR5523 USB IEEE802.11a/b/g Wireless Network Driver

DESCRIPTION


The uath IEEE802.11a/b/g wireless network driver is a multi-threaded,
loadable, clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting Atheros AR5523
USB IEEE802.11a/b/g wireless network driver.

Configuration


The uath 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.
