58.Sh DESCRIPTION
59The
60.Nm
61utility controls the operation of Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG
62networking devices via
63.Xr iwi 4
64driver.
65.Pp
66You should not use this program to configure IEEE 802.11 parameters. Use
67.Xr ifconfig 8
68instead.
69.Sh OPTIONS
70The options are as follows:
71.Bl -tag -width indent
72.It Oo Fl i Oc Ar iface
73Displays adapter's internal statistics.
74.It Oo Fl i Oc Ar iface Fl d Ar directory Oo Fl m Ar bss|ibss Oc
75Download firmware binary image to the adapter. The image is read from the
76.Ar directory
77directory. By default, the firmware binary image for BSS (aka infrastructure
78mode) mode is downloaded unless the
79.Fl m
80flag is given.
81.It Oo Fl i Oc Ar iface Fl k
82Kill the firmware and reset the adapter.
83.It Oo Fl i Oc Ar iface Fl r
84Displays the radio transmitter state (on or off).
85.It Oo Fl i Oc Ar iface Fl D
86Dumps the contents of the firmware event and error logs. Information is
87mostly in hexadecimal form and as such isn't overly useful (yet).
