RUM(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			RUM(4)

NAME
     rum -- Ralink Technology USB IEEE 802.11a/b/g wireless network device

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device ehci
	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device usb
	   device rum
	   device wlan
	   device wlan_amrr

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   if_rum_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The rum driver supports USB 2.0 and PCI Express Mini Card wireless
     adapters based on the Ralink RT2501USB and	RT2601USB chipsets.

     Ralink PCI	Express	Mini Card adapters show	up as normal USB 2.0 devices
     and are thus handled by the rum driver.

     The RT2501USB chipset is the second generation of 802.11a/b/g adapters
     from Ralink.  It consists of two integrated chips,	an RT2571W MAC/BBP and
     an	RT2528 or RT5226 radio transceiver.

     The RT2601USB chipset consists of two integrated chips, an	RT2671 MAC/BBP
     and an RT2527 or RT5225 radio transceiver.	 This chipset uses the MIMO
     (multiple-input multiple-output) technology with multiple antennas	to
     extend the	operating range	of the adapter and to achieve higher through-
     put.

     rum supports station, adhoc, hostap, and monitor mode operation.  Only
     one virtual interface may be configured at	any time.  For more informa-
     tion on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

HARDWARE
     The rum driver supports USB 2.0 wireless adapters based on	the Ralink
     RT2501USB and RT2601USB chipsets, including:

EXAMPLES
     Join an existing BSS network (i.e., connect to an access point):

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	rum0 inet 192.168.0.20 \
	       netmask 0xffffff00

     Join a specific BSS network with network name ``my_net'':

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	rum0 ssid my_net up

     Join a specific BSS network with 64-bit WEP encryption:

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	rum0 ssid my_net \
		   wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up

     Join a specific BSS network with 128-bit WEP encryption:

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	rum0 wlanmode adhoc ssid my_net	\
	       wepmode on wepkey 0x01020304050607080910111213 weptxkey 1

DIAGNOSTICS
     rum%d: could not load 8051	microcode  An error occurred while attempting
     to	upload the microcode to	the onboard 8051 microcontroller unit.	The
     driver will reset the hardware.  This should not happen.

HISTORY
     The rum driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.0.

AUTHORS
     The original rum driver was written by Niall O'Higgins
     <niallo@openbsd.org> and
     Damien Bergamini <damien@openbsd.org>.

BUGS
     Host AP mode doesn't support client power save.  Clients using power save
     mode will experience packet loss (disabling power saving on the client
     will fix this).
