NAME


urtw - RealTek RTL8187L/RTL8187B USB 802.11b/g Wireless Driver

DESCRIPTION


The urtw 802.11b/g wireless driver is a multi-threaded, loadable,
clonable, GLDv3-basedSTREAMS driver supporting the RealTek RTL8187L
chipset-based wireless devices.

Configuration


The urtw 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, 8, 24, 36, 48
and 54 Mbits/sec. The atu driver supports only BSS networks (also known
asap or infrastructure networks) and open (or open-system) or shared
system authentication.
