|BSS mode||Also known as infrastructure mode, this is used when associating with an access point, through which all traffic passes. This mode is the default.|
The rsu driver can be configured to use Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK). WPA is the de facto encryption standard for wireless networks. It is strongly recommended that WEP not be used as the sole mechanism to secure wireless communication, due to serious weaknesses in it.
The rsu driver can be configured at runtime with ifconfig(8).
The driver needs at least version 1.2 of the following firmware file, which is loaded when an interface is attached:
The rsu driver provices support for Realtek RTL8188SU/RTL8192SU USB IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless network adapters, including:
Belkin F7D1101 v1
D-Link DWA-131 A1
Sitecom WL-349 v1
Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):ifconfig wlan create wlandev rsu0 inet 192.168.0.20 \ netmask 0xffffff00
Join a specific BSS network with network name "my_net":
ifconfig wlan create wlandev rsu0 ssid my_net up
Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:ifconfig wlan create wlandev rsu0 ssid my_net \ wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up
%s: failed load firmware of file rsu-rtl8712fw For some reason, the driver was unable to read the microcode file from the filesystem. The file might be missing or corrupted. device timeout A frame dispatched to the hardware for transmission did not complete in time. The driver will reset the hardware. This should not happen.
