NAME

     malo - Marvell Libertas IEEE 802.11b/g wireless network driver

SYNOPSIS

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

           device malo
           device pci
           device wlan
           device firmware

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

           if_malo_load="YES"
           wlan_load="YES"
           firmware_load="YES"

     In both cases, place the following line in loader.conf(5) to load the
     firmware module:

           malofw_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The malo driver provides support for Marvell Libertas 88W8335 based PCI
     network adapters.

     This driver requires firmware to be loaded before it will work.  These
     firmware files are from the OpenBSD malo driver.

     A package for the firmware which can be installed via pkg_add(1) can be
     found at:

           http://weongyo.org/project/malo/malo-firmware-1.4.tar.gz

     This package must be installed before ifconfig(8) will work.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE

     The following cards are among those supported by the malo driver:

           Card                   Chip       Bus        Standard
           Netgear WG311v3        88W8335    PCI        b/g
           Tenda TWL542P          88W8335    PCI        b/g
           U-Khan UW-2054i        88W8335    PCI        b/g

EXAMPLES

     Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):

           ifconfig malo0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00

     Join a specific BSS network with network name “my_net”:

           ifconfig malo0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net

     Join a specific BSS network with WEP encryption:

           ifconfig malo0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net \
                   wepmode on wepkey 0x8736639624
