No encryption and WEP encryption

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 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.
