iwi* at pci?
iwidriver provides support for Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG Mini PCI and 2225BG PCI network adapters.
These are the modes the
driver can operate in:
iwi 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.
iwi driver relies on the software
802.11 stack for both encryption and decryption of data frames.
These firmware files are not free because Intel refuses to grant distribution rights without contractual obligations. As a result, even though OpenBSD includes the driver, the firmware files cannot be included and users have to download these files on their own. The official person to state your views to about this issue is email@example.com.
A prepackaged version of the firmware can be installed using fw_update(1).
# ifconfig iwi0 scan
The following hostname.if(5) example configures iwi0 to join network “mynwid”, using WPA key “mywpakey”, obtaining an IP address using DHCP:
nwid mynwid wpakey mywpakey dhcp
iwidriver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.7.
