           insmod wavelan_cs.o [io=B,B..] [ irq=I,I..] [name=N,N..]


           This  driver  is  obsolete:  it  was removed from the kernel in version
           wavelan is the low-level device driver for the  NCR  /  AT&T  /  Lucent
           WaveLAN  ISA  and Digital (DEC) RoamAbout DS wireless ethernet adapter.
           This driver is available as a module or might be compiled in  the  ker-
           nel.   This  driver supports multiple cards in both forms (up to 4) and
           allocates the next available ethernet device (eth0..eth#) for each card
           found,  unless a device name is explicitly specified (see below).  This
           device name will be reported in  the  kernel  log  file  with  the  MAC
           address, NWID and frequency used by the card.
           This  section  apply  to the module form (parameters passed on the ins-
           mod(8) command line).  If the driver is included in the kernel, use the
           ether=IRQ,IO,NAME syntax on the kernel command line.
           io     Specify  the  list  of  base address where to search for wavelan
                  cards (setting by dip switch on the card).  If you don't specify
                  any  io address, the driver will scan 0x390 and 0x3E0 addresses,
                  which might conflict with other hardware...
           irq    Set the list of irq that each wavelan card should use (the value
                  is saved in permanent storage for future use).
           name   Set  the  list  of name to be used for each wavelan cards device
                  (name used by ifconfig(8)).
       Wireless extensions
           Use iwconfig(8) to manipulate wireless extensions.
       NWID (or domain)
           Set the network ID [0 to FFFF] or disable it [off].   As  the  NWID  is
           stored in the card Permanent Storage Area, it will be reuse at any fur-
           ther invocation of the driver.
       Frequency & channels
           For the 2.4GHz 2.00 Hardware, you are able  to  set  the  frequency  by
           specifying one of the 10 defined channels (2.412, 2.422, 2.425, 2.4305,
           2.432, 2.442, 2.452, 2.460, 2.462 or 2.484) or directly by  its  value.
           The frequency is changed immediately and permanently.  Frequency avail-
           ability depends on the regulations...
       Statistics spy
           Set a list of MAC addresses in the driver (up to 8) and  get  the  last
           quality of link for each of those (see iwspy(8)).
           This functionality makes it possible to set a number  of  signal  level
           intervals  and to count the number of packets received in each of those
           defined intervals.  This distribution might be used  to  calculate  the
           mean value and standard deviation of the signal level.
       Specific notes
           This  driver  will  fail  to  detect  some non-NCR/ATT&T/Lucent Wavelan
           cards.  If this happens for you, you must look in the  source  code  on
           how to add your card to the detection routine.
           Some of the mentioned features are optional.  You may enable to disable
           them by changing flags in the driver header and recompile.
