 Basic Support for IPv6 over IEEE Std 802.11 Networks Operating Outside
        the Context of a Basic Service Set (IPv6-over-80211-OCB)
                draft-ietf-ipwave-ipv6-over-80211ocb-49

Abstract

   This document provides methods and settings, and describes
   limitations, for using IPv6 to communicate among nodes in range of
   one another over a single IEEE 802.11-OCB link.  This support does
   only require minimal changes to existing stacks.  Optimizations and
   usage of IPv6 over more complex scenarios is not covered in this
   specification and is subject of future work.
