HostApMode

Intersil's station firmware for Prism2 chipset supports a so called HostApMode in which the firmware takes care of time critical tasks like beacon sending and frame acknowledging, but leaves other management tasks to host computer driver.

This driver implements basic functionality needed to initialize and configure Prism2-based cards, to send and receive frames, and to gather statistics.

In addition, it includes an implementation of the following IEEE 802.11 functions:

The driver has also various features for development debugging and for researching IEEE 802.11 environments like access to hardware configuration records, I/O registers, and frames with 802.11 headers.
