IPWCTL(8)                   System Manager's Manual                  IPWCTL(8)

NAME
     ipwctl -- configure Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 network adapter

SYNOPSIS
     ipwctl [-i] iface
     ipwctl [-i] iface -r

DESCRIPTION
     The ipwctl utility controls the operation of Intel PRO/Wireless 2100
     networking devices via ipw(4) driver.

     You should not use this program to configure IEEE 802.11 parameters.  Use
     ifconfig(8) instead.

OPTIONS
     The options are as follows:

     -i iface
             Display adapter's internal statistics.

     -i iface -r
             Display the radio switch state (on or off).

FILES
     The firmware, loaded automatically, is not shipped with NetBSD; install
     the pkgsrc/sysutils/ipw-firmware package.  The original archive is
     available from Intel at:
     http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/firmware.php?fid=3.
