Members

channel

The channel to use or NULL if not specified (auto-select based on scan results)

channel_hint

The channel of the recommended BSS for initial connection or NULL if not specified

bssid

The AP BSSID or NULL if not specified (auto-select based on scan results)

bssid_hint

The recommended AP BSSID for initial connection to the BSS or NULL if not specified. Unlike the bssid parameter, the driver is allowed to ignore this bssid_hint if it has knowledge of a better BSS to use.

ssid

SSID

ssid_len

Length of ssid in octets

auth_type

Authentication type (algorithm)

ie

IEs for association request

ie_len

Length of assoc_ie in octets

privacy

indicates whether privacy-enabled APs should be used

mfp

indicate whether management frame protection is used

crypto

crypto settings

key

WEP key for shared key authentication

key_len

length of WEP key for shared key authentication

key_idx

index of WEP key for shared key authentication

flags

See enum cfg80211_assoc_req_flags

bg_scan_period

Background scan period in seconds or -1 to indicate that default value is to be used.

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 overrides

vht_capa_mask

The bits of vht_capa which are to be used.

pbss

if set, connect to a PCP instead of AP. Valid for DMG networks.

Description

This structure provides information needed to complete IEEE 802.11 authentication and association.
