RAY(4)                  NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                 RAY(4)

NAME
     ray -- Raytheon Raylink / WebGear Aviator IEEE 802.11 2Mbps Wireless

SYNOPSIS
     ray* at pcmcia? function ?
     options RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_DEFAULT=RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_USA

DESCRIPTION
     The ray device driver supports the Raytheon Raylink and Aviator 2.4/PRO
     802.11 FH 2Mbps wireless PCMCIA cards.  The cards can be operated in
     either ad-hoc or infrastructure modes. The operating mode is selectable
     with ifconfig(8) through a media option.

     To communicate with other 802.11 cards a common network id or NWID must
     be specified on each station that wishes to participate in the shared
     wireless network.  The NWID can be set with ifconfig(8).

     The device uses IEEE 802.11 standard Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum
     signaling and operates in the ranges of 2.400 to 2.4835 Gigahertz.  This
     frequency range is further restricted by country according to that coun-
     try's regulations.  Currently the ray driver defaults to using the ranges
     appropriate for the USA.  To change this setting you must define the ker-
     nel option RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_DEFAULT to one of the following values:

     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_USA
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_EUROPE
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_JAPAN
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_KOREA
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_SPAIN
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_FRANCE
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_ISRAEL
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_AUSTRALIA

     The output power of the transceiver is 100mW and the card's power con-
     sumption is 365 mA @ 5 volts.  The transmission range in open air (line
     of sight) is a maximum of 1000 feet (or ~304 meters), and indoors (i.e.,
     with obstructions) it is a maximum of 500 feet (152 meters).

HARDWARE
     Cards supported by the ray driver include:

     WebGear Aviator 2.4
     WebGear Aviator PRO
     Raytheon Raylink WLAN

DIAGNOSTICS
     ray0: card failed self test: status x  Indicates the card has failed its
     initial startup tests.

HISTORY
     The ray driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.

AUTHORS
     The ray driver was written by Christian E. Hopps <chopps@NetBSD.org>.

BUGS
     Currently the infrastructure mode is untested, and authentication using
     WEP is unimplemented.
