|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.|
|Host AP mode||In this mode the driver acts as an access point (base station) for other cards.|
|monitor mode||In this mode the driver is able to receive packets without associating with an access point. This disables the internal receive filter and enables the card to capture packets from networks which it wouldnt normally have access to, or to scan for access points.|
The run 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 run driver offloads both encryption and decryption of data frames to the hardware for the WEP40, WEP104, TKIP(+MIC) and CCMP ciphers.
The run driver can be configured at runtime with ifconfig(8).
The run driver supports the following wireless adapters:
ASUS USB-N13 ver. A1
Belkin F5D8051 ver 3000
Belkin F6D4050 ver 1
D-Link DWA-130 rev B1
D-Link DWA-140 rev B1, B2, B3, D1
D-Link DWA-160 rev B2
DrayTek Vigor N61
Linksys WUSB54GC v3
Mvix Nubbin MS-811N
TP-LINK TL-WN727N v3
Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):ifconfig wlan create wlandev run0 inet 192.168.0.20 \ netmask 0xffffff00
Join a specific BSS network with network name "my_net":
ifconfig wlan create wlandev run0 ssid my_net up
Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:ifconfig wlan create wlandev run0 ssid my_net \ wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up
Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption:ifconfig wlan create wlandev run0 wlanmode adhoc ssid my_net \ wepmode on wepkey 0x01020304050607080910111213 weptxkey 1
run%d: faild load firmware of file runfw For some reason, the driver was unable to read the microcode file from the filesystem. The file might be missing or corrupted. run%d: could not load 8051 microcode An error occurred while attempting to upload the microcode to the onboard 8051 microcontroller unit. run%d: 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.
