pgtdriver provides support for Conexant/Intersil GT-series devices which can support the Full-Mac firmware, using the ISL3877, ISL3880, and ISL3890 chips. The
pgtdriver will not (yet) work on similar devices using the ISL3886 or similar chips which use the Soft-Mac firmware.
These are the modes the
pgt driver can
pgt driver can be configured to use
hardware Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). It is strongly recommended that WEP
not be used as the sole mechanism to secure wireless communication, due to
serious weaknesses in it.
In BSS mode, the driver supports powersave mode, which can be enabled via ifconfig(8).
These firmware files are not free because Conexant refuses to grant distribution rights. In fact they have rebuffed thousands of attempts to start a dialogue on this issue. 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.
A prepackaged version of the firmware can be installed using fw_update(1).

# ifconfig pgt0 scan
The following hostname.if(5) example configures pgt0 to join network “mynwid”, using WEP key “mywepkey”, obtaining an IP address using DHCP:
nwid mynwid nwkey mywepkey dhcp
The following hostname.if(5) example creates a host-based access point on boot:
mediaopt hostap nwid mynwid nwkey mywepkey inet 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
pgtdriver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.0.
pgtdriver was originally written for FreeBSD by Brian Fundakowski, and then rewritten for OpenBSD by Marcus Glocker and Claudio Jeker.
