Name

uath - Atheros AR5523 USB IEEE802.11a/b/g Wireless Network Driver

Description

The uath IEEE802.11a/b/g wireless network driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable, GLDv3-based STREAMS driver supporting Atheros AR5523 USB IEEE802.11a/b/g wireless network driver.

Configuration

The uath 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(8) utility.
