IWICTL(8)               NetBSD System Manager's Manual               IWICTL(8)

NAME
     iwictl -- configure Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG network adapters

SYNOPSIS
     iwictl [-i] iface
     iwictl [-i] iface -r

DESCRIPTION
     The iwictl utility controls the operation of Intel(R) PRO/Wireless
     2200BG/2915ABG networking devices via the iwi(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
             Displays adapter's internal statistics.  Firmware binary images
             can be found in the pkgsrc/sysutils/iwi-firmware package.

     -i iface -r
             Displays the radio transmitter state (on or off).

FILES
     The firmware is not shipped with NetBSD.  It can be obtained via
     installing the pkgsrc/sysutils/iwi-firmware package and is loaded auto-
     matically by the kernel once installed.

SEE ALSO
     iwi(4), ifconfig(8) pkgsrc/sysutils/iwi-firmware
