Documentation? When do we start?
I have something up at
That article dosen't cover things like WEP, WDS, or HostAP in Infrastructure and Ad-Hoc modes. I do mention basic configuration and iwconfig usage, and bridging care of Jouni's generous example in README.prism2.
What additional information and in what format(s) did you have in mind? I stuffed all that into plain text HTML pages. For documentation, something like DocBook XML, which I've never used, seems more appropriate, right?
