Joshua Oreman: 802.11 wireless development


  • Information on the 802.11 protocol, as culled from the oft-convoluted 802.11-2007 standard. (Note that the new high-speed 802.11n standard is not finalized and costs a fairly significant sum, so gPXE will probably not support it, at least at first. 802.11-2007 is free from IEEE's website.)
  • A gPXE 802.11 design overview describing the tradeoffs I've chosen (for now, at least) and design I've sketched out to hopefully have an elegant final result.
  • Wikipedia has a good table of current open-source wireless support, though it's slightly out of date.
  • Interesting Idea that may well go nowhere: loading part of gPXE over the network.
