device driver supports the Raytheon
Raylink and Aviator 2.4/PRO 802.11 Frequency Hopping 2Mbps wireless PCMCIA
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 country's regulations.
driver defaults to using
the ranges appropriate for the USA. To change this setting, define the kernel
of the following values:
These are the modes the
- BSS mode
- Also known as infrastructure mode, this is
used when associating with an access point, through which all traffic
passes. This mode is the default.
- IBSS mode
- Also known as IEEE ad-hoc mode or
peer-to-peer mode. This is the standardized
method of operating without an access point. Stations associate with a
service set. However, actual connections between stations are

The following example scans for available networks:
# ifconfig ray0 scan
example configures ray0 to join network “mynwid”, obtaining an
IP address using DHCP:
- ray0: card failed self test: status x
- Indicates the card has failed its initial startup tests.
