otus — Atheros USB
IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n wireless network device
otus* at uhub? port ?
otus driver supports USB 2.0 wireless
network devices based on Atheros Communications AR9001U chipset.
The AR9001U chipset is made of an AR9170 MAC/Baseband and an AR9101 (1T2R), AR9102 (2T2R) or AR9104 (dual-band 2T2R) Radio.
These are the modes the
otus driver can
otus driver can be configured to use
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK). WPA is the current encryption standard for wireless networks. It
is strongly recommended that WEP not be used as the sole mechanism to secure
wireless communication, due to serious weaknesses in it.
The driver needs at least version 1.0 of the following firmware files, which are loaded when an interface is attached:
Although these firmware files are freely redistributable, their usage is restricted. A prepackaged version of the firmware can be installed using fw_update(1).
The following adapters should work:
The following example scans for available networks:
# ifconfig otus0 scan
The following hostname.if(5) example configures otus0 to join network “mynwid”, using WPA key “mywpakey”, obtaining an IP address using DHCP:
nwid mynwid wpakey mywpakey dhcp
otus driver first appeared in
otus driver was written by
based on source code licensed under the ISC released in 2008 by Atheros
Communications for Linux.
The AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N adapter is currently not supported.
otus driver does not support any of
the 802.11n capabilities offered by the AR9001U chipset. Additional work is
required in ieee80211(9)
before those features can be supported.
This driver does not support powersave mode.
