- Marvell 88W8363 IEEE802.11b/g Wireless Network Device Driver
The mwl IEEE802.11b/g wireless network device driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting the Marvell 88W8363 IEEE802.11b/g wireless network device.
The mwl driver performs auto-negotiation to determine the data rate and mode. The driver supports only BSS networks (also known as ap or infrastructure networks) and open (or open-system) or shared system authentication.
For wireless security, WEP encryption, WPA-PSk, and WPA2-PSK are currently supported. You can perform configuration and administration tasks using the dladm(1M) utility.
