NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for ieee80211_ioctl (netbsd section 9)

IEEE80211_IOCTL(9)		  BSD Kernel Developer's Manual 	       IEEE80211_IOCTL(9)

NAME
     ieee80211_cfgget, ieee80211_cfgset, ieee80211_ioctl -- 802.11 interface ioctl commands

SYNOPSIS
     #include <net80211/ieee80211_var.h>
     #include <net80211/ieee80211_proto.h>
     #include <net80211/ieee80211_ioctl.h>

     int
     ieee80211_cfgget(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

     int
     ieee80211_cfgset(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

     int
     ieee80211_ioctl(struct ieee80211com *ic, u_long cmd, void *data);

DESCRIPTION
     These functions are typically invoked by drivers in response to requests for information or
     to change settings from the userland.

     The ieee80211_cfgget() and ieee80211_cfgset() functions implement a legacy interface for
     getting and setting 802.11 interface attributes respectively.  The interface is compatible
     with the RIDs implemented by the wi(4) driver and used by the wiconfig(8) utility.

     The ieee80211_ioctl() function implements ioctls such as key management for wireless
     devices.  Ioctls related to the Ethernet layer also pass through here, but are handed off to
     ether_ioctl() when no match for cmd is found.

SEE ALSO
     wi(4), ifconfig(8), wiconfig(8), ieee80211(9)

HISTORY
     The ieee80211 series of functions first appeared in NetBSD 1.5, and were later ported to
     FreeBSD 4.6.
