+.Cd "cnw0 at pcmcia?"
  44
+.Sh DESCRIPTION
  45
+The
  46
+.Nm cnw
  47
+interface provides access to a theoretical 1 Mb/s wireless ethernet network
  48
+based on the Netwave AirSurfer Wireless LAN (formerly known as the Xircom
  49
+Netwave Wireless LAN).
  50
+It use 32K of I/O memory mapped to the card along with either 16 I/O ports
  51
+or 4K of additional I/O memory for access to command registers.  The
  52
+driver currently only supports the use of the additional 4K of I/O memory.
  53
+.Pp
  54
+In use, the cards appear to achieve up to a 420Kb/s transfer rate, though
  55
+a transfer rate between 250Kb/s and 350Kb/s is typical.  The card
  56
+operates in the 2.4Ghz frequency range and is subject to interference
  57
+from microwaves as well as earth.
