SYNOPSIS

To compile support for the ural driver into your kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file:


.Cd "device ehci"


.Cd "device uhci"


.Cd "device ohci"


.Cd "device usb"


.Cd "device ural"


.Cd "device wlan"

Alternatively, to load the ural driver at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):
if_ural_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The ural driver supports USB 2.0 wireless adapters based on the RT2500USB chipset.

The RT2500USB chipset consists of two integrated chips, a RT2570 MAC/BBP and a radio transceiver (the model of which depends on the card revision).

The RT2522, RT2523, RT2524, RT2525, RT2525e and RT2526 radio transceivers operate in the 2.4GHz band (802.11b/g) whereas the RT5222 is a dual-band radio transceiver that can operate in the 2.4GHz and 5.2GHz bands (802.11a).

EXAMPLES

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

"ifconfig ural0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00"

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

"ifconfig ural0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net"

Join a specific BSS network with 40-bit WEP encryption:
ifconfig ural0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net \
wepmode on wepkey 0x1234567890

Join a specific BSS network with 104-bit WEP encryption:
ifconfig ural0 inet 192.168.0.20 netmask 0xffffff00 ssid my_net \
wepmode on wepkey 0x01020304050607080910111213
