 15           A driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 Network 
 16           Connection 802.11b wireless network adapter.
 17 
 18           See <file:Documentation/networking/README.ipw2100> for information on
 19           the capabilities currently enabled in this driver and for tips
 20           for debugging issues and problems.
 21 
 22           In order to use this driver, you will need a firmware image for it.
 23           You can obtain the firmware from
 24           <http://ipw2100.sf.net/>.  Once you have the firmware image, you 
 25           will need to place it in /lib/firmware.
 26 
 27           You will also very likely need the Wireless Tools in order to
 28           configure your card:
 29 
 30           <http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Tools.html>.
 31 
 32           It is recommended that you compile this driver as a module (M)
 33           rather than built-in (Y). This driver requires firmware at device
 34           initialization time, and when built-in this typically happens
 35           before the filesystem is accessible (hence firmware will be
 36           unavailable and initialization will fail). If you do choose to build
 37           this driver into your kernel image, you can avoid this problem by
 38           including the firmware and a firmware loader in an initramfs.
 39  
 40 config IPW2100_MONITOR
 41         bool "Enable promiscuous mode"
 42         depends on IPW2100
 43         ---help---
 44           Enables promiscuous/monitor mode support for the ipw2100 driver.
 45           With this feature compiled into the driver, you can switch to 
 46           promiscuous mode via the Wireless Tool's Monitor mode.  While in this
 47           mode, no packets can be sent.
 48 
 49 config IPW2100_DEBUG
 50         bool "Enable full debugging output in IPW2100 module."
 51         depends on IPW2100
 52         ---help---
 53           This option will enable debug tracing output for the IPW2100.  
 54 
 55           This will result in the kernel module being ~60k larger.  You can 
 56           control which debug output is sent to the kernel log by setting the 
 57           value in 
 58 
 59           /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2100/debug_level
 60 
 61           This entry will only exist if this option is enabled.
 62 
 63           If you are not trying to debug or develop the IPW2100 driver, you 
 64           most likely want to say N here.

 87           for information on where to install the firmware images.

103         bool "Enable promiscuous mode"
104         depends on IPW2200
105         ---help---
106           Enables promiscuous/monitor mode support for the ipw2200 driver.
107           With this feature compiled into the driver, you can switch to 
108           promiscuous mode via the Wireless Tool's Monitor mode.  While in this
109           mode, no packets can be sent.

117         depends on IPW2200_MONITOR
118         select IPW2200_RADIOTAP
119         ---help---
120           Enables the creation of a second interface prefixed 'rtap'. 
121           This second interface will provide every received in radiotap
122           format.
123 
124           This is useful for performing wireless network analysis while
125           maintaining an active association.
126 
127           Example usage:
128 
129             % modprobe ipw2200 rtap_iface=1
130             % ifconfig rtap0 up
131             % tethereal -i rtap0
132 
133           If you do not specify 'rtap_iface=1' as a module parameter then 
134           the rtap interface will not be created and you will need to turn 
135           it on via sysfs:
136         
137             % echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/ipw2200/*/rtap_iface
138 
139 config IPW2200_QOS

141         depends on IPW2200
142 
143 config IPW2200_DEBUG
144         bool "Enable full debugging output in IPW2200 module."
145         depends on IPW2200
146         ---help---
147           This option will enable low level debug tracing output for IPW2200.
148 
149           Note, normal debug code is already compiled in. This low level
150           debug option enables debug on hot paths (e.g Tx, Rx, ISR) and
151           will result in the kernel module being ~70 larger.  Most users
152           will typically not need this high verbosity debug information.
153 
154           If you are not sure, say N here.

170         select LIB80211_CRYPT_TKIP
171         select LIB80211_CRYPT_CCMP
172         ---help---
173         This option enables the hardware independent IEEE 802.11
174         networking stack.  This component is deprecated in favor of the
175         mac80211 component.
176 
177 config LIBIPW_DEBUG
178         bool "Full debugging output for the LIBIPW component"
179         depends on LIBIPW
180         ---help---
181           This option will enable debug tracing output for the
182           libipw component.
183 
184           This will result in the kernel module being ~70k larger.  You
185           can control which debug output is sent to the kernel log by
186           setting the value in
187 
188           /proc/net/ieee80211/debug_level
189 
190           For example:
191 
192           % echo 0x00000FFO > /proc/net/ieee80211/debug_level
193 
194           For a list of values you can assign to debug_level, you
195           can look at the bit mask values in ieee80211.h
196 
197           If you are not trying to debug or develop the libipw
198           component, you most likely want to say N here.
