Members

ssid

The SSID, will always be non-null.

bssid

Fixed BSSID requested, maybe be NULL, if set do not search for IBSSs with a different BSSID.

chandef

defines the channel to use if no other IBSS to join can be found

ie

information element(s) to include in the beacon

ssid_len

The length of the SSID, will always be non-zero.

ie_len

length of that

beacon_interval

beacon interval to use

basic_rates

bitmap of basic rates to use when creating the IBSS

channel_fixed

The channel should be fixed -- do not search for IBSSs to join on other channels.

privacy

this is a protected network, keys will be configured after joining

control_port

whether user space controls IEEE 802.1X port, i.e., sets/clears NL80211_STA_FLAG_AUTHORIZED. If true, the driver is required to assume that the port is unauthorized until authorized by user space. Otherwise, port is marked authorized by default.

userspace_handles_dfs

whether user space controls DFS operation, i.e. changes the channel when a radar is detected. This is required to operate on DFS channels.

mcast_rate[NUM_NL80211_BANDS]

per-band multicast rate index + 1 (0: disabled)

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.

Description

This structure defines the IBSS parameters for the join_ibss method.
