Project Summary

MadWifi is a Linux driver for IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN devices that are based on chipsets from Atheros. It supports all relevant modes of operation (client, Access Point, 802.11 IBSS aka ad-hoc, ahdemo, WDS, monitor), state-of-the-art encryption (WPA, WPA2, 802.1x), Multi-SSID operation, and more.
