==Installation==
 
Download the latest Serialmonkey CVS snapshot from [http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz here].
 
 
 
Unpack this file somewhere and follow the Module/README install instructions: compile the sources with :
 
$ make
 
and install them with:
 
# make install
 
load the rt61 module:
 
# modprobe rt61
 
 
 
==Bringing up the interface==
 
 
 
===No encryption and WEP encryption===
 
Edit rc.conf to met your config:
 
wlan_wlan0='wlan0 essid <youressid>' #no encryption
 
wlan_wlan0='wlan0 essid <youressid> key open s:<yourWEPkey>' #WEP encryption
 
wlan0=('dhcp')
 
INTERFACES=(wlan0 lo) #among other interfaces
 
 
 
===WPA/PSK or WPA2/PSK===
 
The README file tells you how to configure the interface using iwconfig and iwlist commands. To set up the system to configure the interface at startup you can use the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?do_Details=1&ID=10514&O=0&L=0&C=0&K=rt61&SB=n&SO=a&PP=25&do_MyPackages=0&do_Orphans=0&SeB=nd| rt61-cvs AUR package] scripts from klixon. Simply download 'rt61wpa' to '/etc/rc.d/rt61wpa' and 'rt61-wpa.conf.d' to '/etc/conf.d/rt61-wpa', configure the 'rt61-wpa' file and place 'rt61wpa' in your rc.conf DAEMONS array before 'network'. You also have to put
 
wlan0=('dhcp')
 
INTERFACES=(wlan0 lo) #among other interfaces
 
in your rc.conf.
 
 
 
==Master Mode==
 
This is currently not supported by legacy drivers [http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4203 Serialmonkey Forum]. Solution is to compile new kernel with some patches and using patched hostapd for beacons. [http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4582 Serialmonkey Again]
