- Saying Y here also enables the Wireless Extensions (creates

- Extension is a generic API allowing a driver to expose to the user

- The beauty of it is that a single set of tool can support all the

- the driver supports Wireless Extension). Another advantage is that
- these parameters may be changed on the fly without restarting the
