80211debug - control the debug output from the madwifi 802.11 stack


80211debug [-i interface] +/- bitmap


Set and clear debug bitmaps for the madwifi 802.11 stack. Each argument is a bitmap or its alias. If a bitmap alias is used then it must be prefixed by either "-" to clear or "+" to set the corresponding bitmap.


Display usage and list all debug bitmaps.
-i interface
The madwifi interface to debug. If no interface is specified, 80211debug defaults to ath0.
+/- bitmap
Set (+) or clear (-) a bitmap. It's quite tedious to remember the bitmaps, fortunately there is a user friendly interface which can be used to enable or disable debugging output by giving the name of the component or subsystem.

All debugging output can be enabled with 0xffffffff bitmap, while 0x0 disables all debug output.
