wlan_wep -- WEP crypto support for 802.11 devices SYNOPSIS
device wlan_wep DESCRIPTION
The wlan_wep module handles the WEP cryptographic requirements of the 802.11 protocol. It does encapsulation and decapsulation of WEP- encoded 802.11 frames and optionally calculates the WEP cipher. The wlan_wep module is an 802.11 cryptographic plugin module for use by the wlan(4) module. This module is automatically loaded if a WEP key is configured with ifconfig(8). Should the underlying network device not be capable of doing the WEP calculations in hardware, the wlan_wep module will do the work. SEE ALSO

The wlan_wep driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.0. BSD

malo -- Marvell Libertas IEEE 802.11b/g wireless network driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device malo device pci device wlan device firmware Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following lines in loader.conf(5): if_malo_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The malo driver provides support for Marvell Libertas 88W8335 based PCI and Cardbus network adapters. malo supports station and monitor mode operation. Only one virtual interface may be configured at any time. For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8). This driver requires the malofw firmware kernel module be installed before it will work. The firmware files are not publicly available. A port of the firmware can be found at: The firmware kernel module can be installed by extracting the archive and running 'make install clean' in the malo-firmware-1.4 directory. HARDWARE
The following cards are among those supported by the malo driver: Card Chip Bus Standard Netgear WG311v3 88W8335 PCI b/g Tenda TWL542P 88W8335 PCI b/g U-Khan UW-2054i 88W8335 PCI b/g EXAMPLES
Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point): ifconfig wlan create wlandev malo0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 Join a specific BSS network with network name ``my_net'': ifconfig wlan create wlandev malo0 ssid my_net up Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption: ifconfig wlan create wlandev malo0 ssid my_net wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up SEE ALSO
