I am not sure what you are trying to do....First, do you have wireless working with this card?

What parameters do you need access to?

i have the wlan card

i have the device driver code

i need to put in an energy efficient protocol at the MAC so as to conserve the battery drainage caused due to frequent scanning by the wlan card for the wlan
