urtw — Realtek
RTL8187L/RTL8187B USB IEEE 802.11b/g wireless network device
urtw* at uhub? port ?
urtw driver supports USB 802.11b/g
wireless adapters based on the Realtek RTL8187L and RTL8187B.
These are the modes the
urtw driver can
urtw 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
urtw driver relies on the software 802.11 stack for
both encryption and decryption of data frames.
The following adapters should work:
The following example scans for available networks:
# ifconfig urtw0 scan
The following hostname.if(5) example configures urtw0 to join network “mynwid”, using WPA key “mywpakey”, obtaining an IP address using DHCP:
nwid mynwid wpakey mywpakey dhcp
