+The WiFi settings are configured in the file \texttt{/etc/config/wireless}
+(currently supported on Broadcom only). When booting the router for the first time
+it should detect your card and create a sample configuration that looks like this:
+
+\begin{Verbatim}
+config wifi-device  wl0
+    option type     broadcom
+    option channel  5
+
+config wifi-iface
+    option device   wl0
+    option mode     ap
+    option ssid     OpenWrt
+    option hidden   0
+    option encryption none
+\end{Verbatim}
+
+There are two types of config sections in this file. The '\texttt{wifi-device}' refers to
+the physical wifi interface and '\texttt{wifi-iface}' configures a virtual interface on top
+of that (if supported by the driver).
+
+\paragraph{Options for the \texttt{wifi-device}:}
+
+\begin{itemize}
+       \item \texttt{type} \\
+               The driver to use for this interface.
+       
+       \item \texttt{country} \\
+               The country code used to determine the regulatory settings.
+       
+       \item \texttt{channel} \\
+               The wifi channel (1-14, depending on your country setting).
+
+       \item \texttt{maxassoc} \\
+               Maximum number of associated clients
+
+\end{itemize}
+
+\paragraph{Options for the \texttt{wifi-iface}:}
+
+\begin{itemize}
+       \item \texttt{mode} \\
+               Operating mode:
+               
+               \begin{itemize}
+                       \item \texttt{ap} \\
+                               Access point mode
+
+                       \item \texttt{sta} \\
+                               Client mode
+
+                       \item \texttt{adhoc} \\
+                               Ad-Hoc mode
+
+                       \item \texttt{wds} \\
+                               WDS point-to-point link
+                               
+               \end{itemize}
+       \item \texttt{network} \\
+               Selects the interface section from \texttt{/etc/config/network} to be
+               used with this interface
+
+       \item \texttt{encryption} \\
+               Encryption setting. Accepts the following values:
+               
+               \begin{itemize}
+                       \item \texttt{psk}, \texttt{psk2} \\
+                               WPA(2) Pre-shared Key
+                               
+                       \item \texttt{wpa}, \texttt{wpa2} \\
+                               WPA(2) RADIUS
+                               
+               \end{itemize}
+               
+       \item \texttt{key} (wpa and psk) \\
+               Either the WPA key (PSK mode) or the RADIUS shared secret (WPA RADIUS mode)
+
+       \item \texttt{server} (wpa) \\
+               The RADIUS server address
+
+       \item \texttt{port} (wpa) \\
+               The RADIUS server port
+
+\end{itemize}
+
+\paragraph{Limitations:}
+
+\begin{itemize}
+       \item \textbf{Broadcom}: \\
+               Only the following mode combinations are supported:
+               
+               \begin{itemize}
+                       \item 1x \texttt{sta}, 0-3x \texttt{ap}
+                       \item 1-4x \texttt{ap}
+                       \item 1x \texttt{adhoc}
+               \end{itemize}
+
+               WDS links can only be used in pure AP mode and can't use WEP (except when sharing the
+               settings with the master interface, which is done automatically).
+
+\end{itemize}
