The ray device driver supports the Raytheon Raylink and Aviator 2.4/PRO 802.11 Frequency Hopping 2Mbps wireless PCMCIA cards. The cards can be operated in either adhoc or infrastructure modes. The operating mode is selectable with ifconfig(8) through a media option. Cards supported by the ray driver include: WebGear Aviator 2.4 WebGear Aviator PRO Raytheon Raylink WLAN To communicate with other 802.11 cards a common network ID or NWID must be specified on each station that wishes to participate in the shared wireless network. The NWID can be set with ifconfig(8). The device uses IEEE 802.11 standard Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum signaling and operates in the ranges of 2.400 to 2.4835 Gigahertz. This frequency range is further restricted by country according to that country's regulations. Currently the ray driver defaults to using the ranges appropriate for the USA. To change this setting you must define the kernel option RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_DEFAULT to one of the following values: RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_USA RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_EUROPE RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_JAPAN RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_KOREA RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_SPAIN RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_FRANCE RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_ISRAEL RAY_PID_COUNTRY_CODE_AUSTRALIA The output power of the transceiver is 100mW and the card's power con- sumption is 365 mA @ 5 volts. The transmission range in open air (line of sight) is a maximum of 1000 feet (or ~304 meters), and indoors (i.e., with obstructions) it is a maximum of 500 feet (152 meters). Windows drivers may use one of two framing modes for wireless packets, "translation" and "encapsulation." "Encapsulation" is the only framing mode available when using some older Windows drivers. Setting link0 flag on the interface allows the Ethernet2 in 802.11 "en- capsulation" framing method used by older Windows drivers for the card. For all other purposes, link0 should not be used, and "translation" should be selected if you are given the option in a newer Windows driver.
ray0: card failed self test: status x Indicates the card has failed its initial startup tests.

The ray device driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5. OpenBSD support was added in OpenBSD 2.7.
The ray driver was written by Christian E. Hopps <firstname.lastname@example.org> and ported to OpenBSD by Michael Shalayeff <email@example.com>. Support for interoperating with newer Windows driver was added by Steve Weiss <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Currently the infrastructure mode is untested, and authentication using WEP is unimplemented. Firmware version 4 does not interop with version 5 or higher. MirOS BSD #10-current January 24, 2000 1
