Power-saving can be enabled with ” ifconfig ath0 powersave “, use ” ifconfig ath0 -powersave ” to disable it again.
Most of the network card’s parameters can be changed using ifconfig 8 and wiconfig 8 deprecatedin NetBSD 3. To determine if your network connection between your wireless card and a base station is enabled, check ifconfig 8 output, status should be “active” there. Once you have good communication with the base station or other ad-hoc device, you should configure the wireless network interface just like you would any other network interface.
Download the latest WaveLan Drivers. This document describes how to configure and troubleshoot IEEE See also Hoang Q. This eventually became known as Wi-Fi. Apple provide software for setting up an Apple Airport Base Station. Mass Uses WaveLan wireless cards became enormously popular with schools when the Erate initiative to put wireless into every classroom first started back in the 90s. In particular, you may need to tweak the iomem and possibly iosize parameters of the pcic 4 device.
Wireless cards do suck a lot of power; if you plan on using this while unplugged from the mains, its is recommended. Assuming you haven’t changed anything yet, use ifconfig 8 and wiconfig 8 to show the card’s current configuration. See apmd 8 for details Here’s some quick-and-dirty scripts to get you going: The above example also shows how to set WEP keys, see ifconfig 8 for more documentation.
The History of WaveLan? WEP encryption can be enabled using ” ifconfig nwkey ” with a number of options, see ifconfig 8 for more information. Assuming you have APM configured correctly, you should see the card go into power-saving mode when you disconnect the mains, and return to normal usage when it’s plugged back in!

You’ll see ping times go up, but your power consumption should decrease. This is probably obvious to some, but if you don’t see the PCMCIA card, the problem probably lies with the configuration of the pcic device. In one case, the following configuration was used:.
To use ieeee, add one of the following to your kernel config: Make sure that the channel you select is the same channel your access point or the other card in an ad-hoc network is on. Use ifconfig 8dhclient 8 or whatever you normally use.

To find the correct value for your system, you need to either consult documentation if you can find itor write down every single range used by every jeee device under Windows, and pick a range that appears empty.
WaveLan was the name of a family of wireless networking technology. See apmd 8 for details.
It was also sold by many OEM companies. To use them, add one of the following to your kernel config:.
WaveLan was later renamed to Orinoco, which was quite popular in itself. You can connect at almost any speed available. On this particular system, many addresses were tried for iomem without luck. WaveLan was marketed by several companies who also marketed their wireless bridges and routers. oeee
Using WaveLAN IEEE under NetBSD
A number of useful tools for IEEE Now with the latest generation, there are so many enhanced features with the WaveLan cards. Luceent values may not work for you! If you need to change this, use the ifconfig 8 “ssid” keyword or “nwid”, if you are on NetBSD 1.
