upgt* at uhub? port ?
upgtdriver supports the USB 2.0 Conexant/Intersil PrismGT series wireless adapters based on the GW3887 chipset.
These are the modes the
upgt driver can
upgt driver can be configured to use
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK). WPA is the de facto 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
upgt driver relies on the software 802.11 stack for
both encryption and decryption of data frames.
A prepackaged version of the firmware, designed to be used with pkg_add(1), can be found at:
dhcp NONE NONE NONE nwkey 0x1deadbeef1 chan 11
Configure upgt0 to join network “my_net” using WPA with passphrase “my_passphrase”:
# ifconfig upgt0 nwid my_net wpakey my_passphrase
Join an existing BSS network, “my_net”:
# ifconfig upgt0 192.168.1.1 netmask 0xffffff00 nwid my_net
upgtdriver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.3.
upgtdriver was written by Marcus Glocker ⟨firstname.lastname@example.org⟩.
The hardware specification was reverse engineered by the people at http://www.prism54.org.
upgtdriver just supports the USB 2.0 devices (GW3887 chipset) but not the USB 1.0 devices containing the NET2280, ISL3880, and ISL3886 chipsets. Some further efforts would be necessary to add USB 1.0 support to the driver.
