RAY(4)				   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 			   RAY(4)

NAME
     ray -- Raytheon Raylink / WebGear Aviator IEEE 802.11 2Mbps Wireless

SYNOPSIS
     ray* at pcmcia? function ?
     options RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_DEFAULT=RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_USA

DESCRIPTION
     The ray device driver supports the Raytheon Raylink and Aviator 2.4/PRO 802.11 FH 2Mbps
     wireless PCMCIA cards.  The cards can be operated in either ad-hoc or infrastructure modes.
     The operating mode is selectable with ifconfig(8) through a media option.

     To communicate with other 802.11 cards a common network id or NWID must be specified on each
     station that wishes to participate in the shared wireless network.  The NWID can be set with
     ifconfig(8).

     The device uses IEEE 802.11 standard Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum signaling and oper-
     ates in the ranges of 2.400 to 2.4835 Gigahertz.  This frequency range is further restricted
     by country according to that country's regulations.  Currently the ray driver defaults to
     using the ranges appropriate for the USA.	To change this setting you must define the kernel
     option RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_DEFAULT to one of the following values:

     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_USA
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_EUROPE
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_JAPAN
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_KOREA
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_SPAIN
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_FRANCE
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_ISRAEL
     RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_AUSTRALIA

     The output power of the transceiver is 100mW and the card's power consumption is 365 mA @ 5
     volts.  The transmission range in open air (line of sight) is a maximum of 1000 feet (or
     ~304 meters), and indoors (i.e., with obstructions) it is a maximum of 500 feet (152
     meters).

HARDWARE
     Cards supported by the ray driver include:

     WebGear Aviator 2.4
     WebGear Aviator PRO
     Raytheon Raylink WLAN

DIAGNOSTICS
     ray0: card failed self test: status x  Indicates the card has failed its initial startup
     tests.

SEE ALSO
     ifmedia(4), intro(4), pcmcia(4), ifconfig(8)

HISTORY
     The ray driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.

AUTHORS
     The ray driver was written by Christian E. Hopps <chopps@NetBSD.org>.

BUGS
     Currently the infrastructure mode is untested, and authentication using WEP is unimple-
     mented.
