The NetBSD Foundation is pleased to announce a summer 2018 contract
with Philip Nelson ( to update the IEEE 802.11 stack
basing the update on the FreeBSD current code.  The goals of the
project are:

   -- Minimizing the differences between the FreeBSD and
      NetBSD IEEE 802.11 stack so future updates are easier.

   -- Adding support for the newer protocols 801.11/N and 802.11/AC.

   -- Improving SMP support in the IEEE 802.11 stack.

   -- Adding Virtual Access Point (VAP) support.

   -- Updating as many NIC drivers as time permits for the updated
      IEEE 802.11 stack and VAP changes.

Status reports will be posted to every other week
while the contract is active.
