.It Cm powersavesleep Ar sleep
For IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces, set the desired max powersave sleep
time in milliseconds.
+.It Cm protmode Ar technique
+For IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces operating in 11g, use the specified
+technique for protecting OFDM frames in a mixed 11b/11g network.
+The set of valid techniques is
+.Dq off ,
+.Dq cts
+(CTS to self),
+and
+.Dq rtscts
+(RTS/CTS).
+Technique names are case insensitive.
+.It Cm rtsthreshold Ar length
+For IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces, set the threshold for which
+transmitted frames are preceded by transmission of an
+RTS
+control frame.
+.Ar Length
+is the frame size in bytes and must be in the range 1 to 2312.
+Not all adaptors support setting the RTS threshold.
+.It Cm txpower Ar power
+For IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces, set the power used to transmit frames.
+.Ar Power
+is a unitless value in the range 0 to 100 that is interpreted
+by drivers to derive a device-specific value.
+Out of range values are truncated.
+Typically only a few discreet power settings are available and
+the driver will use the setting closest to the specified value.
+Not all adaptors support changing the transmit power.
.It Cm wepmode Ar mode
For IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces, set the desired WEP mode.
Not all adaptors support all modes.
