Members

bss

The BSS to associate with. If the call is successful the driver is given a reference that it must give back to cfg80211_send_rx_assoc or to cfg80211_assoc_timeout. To ensure proper refcounting, new association requests while already associating must be rejected.

ie

Extra IEs to add to (Re)Association Request frame or NULL

prev_bssid

previous BSSID, if not NULL use reassociate frame. This is used to indicate a request to reassociate within the ESS instead of a request do the initial association with the ESS. When included, this is set to the BSSID of the current association, i.e., to the value that is included in the Current AP address field of the Reassociation Request frame.

ie_len

Length of ie buffer in octets

crypto

crypto settings

use_mfp

Use management frame protection (IEEE 802.11w) in this association

flags

See enum cfg80211_assoc_req_flags

ht_capa

HT Capabilities over-rides. Values set in ht_capa_mask will be used in ht_capa. Un-supported values will be ignored.

ht_capa_mask

The bits of ht_capa which are to be used.

vht_capa

VHT capability override

vht_capa_mask

VHT capability mask indicating which fields to use

Description

This structure provides information needed to complete IEEE 802.11 (re)association.
