NAME


zyd - ZyDAS ZD1211/ZD1211B USB 802.11b/g Wireless Driver

DESCRIPTION


The zyd 802.11b/g wireless driver is a multi-threaded, loadable,
clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting the ZyDAS
ZD1211/ZD1211B USB chipset-based wireless devices.

CONFIGURATION


The zyd 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, 18, 24, 36, 48
and 54 Mbits/sec. The zyd driver supports only BSS networks (also known
as "ap" or "infrastructure" networks) and open (or "open-system"),
shared key and WPA/WPA2 authentication. Supported encryption types are
WEP40, WEP104, TKIP and AES-CCMP.
