NAME

     wlan_wep — WEP crypto support for 802.11 devices

SYNOPSIS

     device wlan_wep

DESCRIPTION

     The wlan_wep module handles the WEP cryptographic requirements of the 802.11 protocol.  It
     does encapsulation and decapsulation of WEP-encoded 802.11 frames and optionally calculates
     the WEP cipher.  The wlan_wep module is an 802.11 cryptographic plugin module for use by the
     wlan(4) module.  This module is automatically loaded if a WEP key is configured with
     ifconfig(8).  Should the underlying network device not be capable of doing the WEP
     calculations in hardware, the wlan_wep module will do the work.

HISTORY
