IWI(4)                  NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                 IWI(4)

NAME
     iwi -- Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG IEEE 802.11 driver

SYNOPSIS
     iwi* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION
     The iwi driver provides support for Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG and
     2915ABG MiniPCI network adapters.

     By default, the iwi driver configures the adapter for BSS operation (aka
     infrastructure mode).  This mode requires the use of an access point.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

     The Intel firmware requires acceptance of the End User License Agreement.
     The full license text can be found in /lib-
     data/firmware/if_iwi/LICENSE.ipw2200-fw.  The license is agreed to by
     setting the sysctl variable hw.iwi.accept_eula to 1.

EXAMPLES
     Join an existing BSS network (i.e.: connect to an access point):

           ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00

     Join a specific BSS network with network name ``my_net'':

           ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 nwid my_net

     Join a specific BSS network with 64 bits WEP encryption:

           ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 nwid my_net \
                   nwkey 0x1234567890

     Join a specific BSS network with 128bits WEP encryption:

           ifconfig iwi0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 nwid my_net \
                   nwkey 0x01020304050607080910111213

DIAGNOSTICS
     iwi%d: device timeout  The driver will reset the hardware.  This should
     not happen.
