NAME
     ipwctl -- configure Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 network adapter

SYNOPSIS
     ipwctl [-i] iface
     ipwctl [-i] iface -r

DESCRIPTION
     The ipwctl utility controls the operation of Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 net-
     working devices via ipw(4) driver.

     You should not use this program to configure IEEE 802.11 parameters.  Use
     ifconfig(8) instead.

OPTIONS
     The options are as follows:

     -i iface
             Display adapter's internal statistics.

     -i iface -r
             Display the radio switch state (on or off).

     able from Intel at: .:
