MALO(4)			 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       MALO(4)

NAME
     malo -- Marvell Libertas IEEE 802.11b/g wireless network driver

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

	   device malo
	   device pci
	   device wlan
	   device firmware

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

	   if_malo_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The malo driver provides support for Marvell Libertas 88W8335 based PCI
     and Cardbus network adapters.  malo supports station and monitor mode op-
     eration.  Only one	virtual	interface may be configured at any time.  For
     more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

     This driver requires the malofw firmware kernel module be installed be-
     fore it will work.	 The firmware files are	not publicly available.	 A
     port of the firmware can be found at:

	   http://weongyo.org/project/malo/malo-firmware-1.4.tar.gz

     The firmware kernel module	can be installed by extracting the archive and
     running `make install clean' in the malo-firmware-1.4 directory.

HARDWARE
     The following cards are among those supported by the malo driver:

	   Card			  Chip	     Bus	Standard
	   Netgear WG311v3	  88W8335    PCI	b/g
	   Tenda TWL542P	  88W8335    PCI	b/g
	   U-Khan UW-2054i	  88W8335    PCI	b/g

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

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	malo0 inet 192.168.0.20	\
	       netmask 0xffffff00

     Join a specific BSS network with network name "my_net":

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	malo0 ssid my_net up

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

	   ifconfig wlan create	wlandev	malo0 ssid my_net \
		   wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890 weptxkey 1 up
