    77The reason why there are two separate programs is that one controls the debugging output from the device (`ath`) specific part and the other one for the generic (`80211`) part. Remember: The 802.11 stack used by MadWifi (net80211) is derived from FreeBSD where it supports more wireless devices than just Atheros based.

    9 Both programs have the same user interface and basically work by setting a bitmap in the driver enabling or disabling debugging output from various subsystems. Both also take an optional parameter `-i device` (e.g. -i wifi1) which can be ommitted if you use wifi0.
