     arl - Aironet Arlan 655 wireless network adapter driver


     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device arl

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):



     The arl driver provides support for Aironet Arlan 655 wireless network
     adapters.  The Arlan 655 series adapters operate at 354kbps, 512kbps,
     1Mbps and 2Mbps.

     The Aironet Arlan 655 devices support Aironet TMA, Aironet Non-TMA and
     PSP operating modes.

     By default, the arl driver configures the Aironet Arlan 655 card for TMA

     To set up Radio Network parameters, use arlcontrol(8).


     arp(4), netintro(4), arlcontrol(8), ifconfig(8)


     When using ifconfig(8) for setting SSID you must use a 4-byte even
     hexadecimal digit value and it must start with 00 or 02.

     You can change channel for current country only through ifconfig(8).  You
     must use arlcontrol(8) for changing country.

     Cannot change link-level address.


     The arl device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.


     The arl driver was initially written by Ivan Sharov
     〈〉.  〈〉 wrote the arlcontrol(8)
     utility and added ioctl(2) support to the driver.  Stanislav Svirid
     〈〉 ported this driver to the new ISA architecture,
     merged some al driver changes, fixed some bugs and made it a module.
