iwp(4D)

Name

iwp - Intel WiFi Link 1000/2000/6000/7000 Series Device Driver

Description

The iwp 802.11b/g/n wireless NIC driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver which supports the Intel WiFi Link 1000/2000/6000/7000 series chipset-based NICs.

Configuration

The iwp 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. Configuration and administration tasks can be performed with dladm(8).
