Wireless networking facilities in FreeBSD

Hands-on experience setting up and inspecting wireless networks

This tutorial will introduce attendees to the wireless networking facilities in FreeBSD and provide hands-on experience setting up and inspecting wireless networks. Attendees should have a good understanding of networking but do not need to be familiar with the IEEE 802.11 standards; any gaps will be filled in as needed.

We will concentrate on the new multi-bss networking facilities that are going into FreeBSD but will also discuss the existing (single bss) facilities. Everyone should bring a laptop running FreeBSD so they can participate (wireless cards will be available for those that need to borrow one). If time permits the design of the wireless software will be discussed.
