I am currently adding some more capabilities to the Cisco Aironet
drivers. (an.c mainly, but ifconfig.c and if_media.h are also involved)
Here's what I am up to....
*Making TX power settable from ifconfig or a userland utility.
*Adding more radio mode options, (currently, it's only adhoc for
peer-to-peer mode or no options for client mode. I want to add HostAP
for sure and possibly others if there is interest.)
What I am curious about is whether it is better to add these
options to ifconfig? or to port tools like ancontrol (one of the other
BSD's aironet tweaking utility) a-la wiconfig(8)
I'd really like to make sure the job is done right and well enough
for it to be checked in, so thanks in advance for your thoughts. They
will really help.
