NETWAVE_CS(4)              Kernel Interfaces Manual              NETWAVE_CS(4)



NAME
       netwave_cs - Xircom Creditcard Netwave device driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod    netwave_cs.o    [pc_debug=n]    [domain=n]   [scramble_key=n]
       [mem_speed=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION
       Netwave_cs is the low-level Card Services driver for the Xircom Credit-
       card  Netwave  PCMCIA  wireless  network  adapter.  When this driver is
       attached to a card, it allocates the  next  available  ethernet  device
       (eth0..eth#).   This  device  name  will  be reported in the kernel log
       file, and will be passed on to cardmgr(8).

       The wireless domain number and scrambling key can  be  specified  using
       module  parameters  when the module is loaded.  These parameters should
       be specified in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts.

PARAMETERS
       pc_debug=n
              Selects the PCMCIA debugging  level.   This  parameter  is  only
              available  if  the module is compiled with debugging enabled.  A
              non-zero value enables debugging.

       domain=n
              Selects what access point(s) to talk to, by their domain number.
              Values from 0 to 0x1ff are valid; 0x100 is the default.

       scramble_key=n
              Selects the scramble key for domains that are scrambled.  Values
              from 0 to 0x1ff are valid.  The default is 0 (no scrambling).

       mem_speed=n
              Sets the access speed of the shared memory window,  in  nanosec-
              onds.  The default is 0 (i.e., no extra wait states).  Values of
              up to 1000 are legal.

       irq_list=i,j,...
              Specifies the set of interrupts that may be  allocated  by  this
              driver.

BUGS
       The statistics reported back from the driver are wrong.

WARNING
       This  man  page describes the standalone PCMCIA drivers provided by the
       pcmcia-cs source, not the PCMCIA kernel driver support that is included
       in  the 2.4 (and later) linux kernel.  While the kernel PCMCIA code has
       the same functionality as the driver  side  of  the  standalone  PCMCIA
       package,  there are some important differences.  Therefore, some or all
       of this documentation might not apply to the kernel drivers.
