Currently i am using FreeBSD 6-STABLE (Feb 3 2005) w/ iwi-firmware
port for Intel 2200bg mini PCI card (along w/ wlan_tkip module) ...
iwi0 at pci2:2:0: class=0x028000 card=0x27118086 chip=0x42208086 rev=0x05 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = 'PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection'
class = network
.. and it seems that hardware TKIP encryption support is missing ...
iwi0: ieee80211_crypto_newkey: no h/w support for cipher TKIP, falling back to s/w
iwi0: ieee80211_crypto_newkey: no h/w support for TKIP MIC, falling back to s/w
... is that right, or is that driver that causes the above messages,
by virtue of being unable to "somehow turn on" hardware TKIP
I am interested in a wireless NIC (802.11g band) which has on board
support to deal directly w/ TKIP, and possibly AES (so that my laptop
does not get very hot while during use of wireless connection). Can
anybody verify if Netgear WG111T has such support?
