Howto configure the Linux kernel / net / ieee80211



  • Option: IEEE80211
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack

option enables the hardware independent IEEE 802.11 stack.


  • Option: IEEE80211_DEBUG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Enable full debugging output
    • depends on IEEE80211
      This option will enable debug tracing output for the ieee80211 network stack.
      This will result in the kernel module being ~70k larger. You can control which debug output is sent to the kernel log by setting the value in
      /proc/net/ieee80211/debug_level
      For example:
       % echo 0x00000FFO > /proc/net/ieee80211/debug_level
      For a list of values you can assign to debug_level, you can look at the bit mask values in <net/ieee80211.h>
      If you are not trying to debug or develop the ieee80211 subsystem, you most likely want to say N here.


  • Option: IEEE80211_CRYPT_WEP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IEEE 802.11 WEP encryption (802.1x)
    • depends on IEEE80211
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_ARC4
    • select CRC32

software based cipher suites in support of IEEE 802.11's WEP. This is needed for WEP as well as 802.1x.

can be compiled as a modules and it will be called ieee80211_crypt_wep.


  • Option: IEEE80211_CRYPT_CCMP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IEEE 802.11i CCMP support
    • depends on IEEE80211
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_AES

software based cipher suites in support of IEEE 802.11i (aka TGi, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, etc.) for use with CCMP enabled .

can be compiled as a modules and it will be called ieee80211_crypt_ccmp.


  • Option: IEEE80211_CRYPT_TKIP
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption
    • depends on IEEE80211 && NET_RADIO
    • select CRYPTO
    • select CRYPTO_MICHAEL_MIC

software based cipher suites in support of IEEE 802.11i (aka TGi, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, etc.) for use with TKIP enabled .

can be compiled as a modules and it will be called ieee80211_crypt_tkip.
