Linux Driver for Centrino WLAN Part

Author: Werner Heuser

wehe writes "Linuxant has released a Linux driver for the Intel(TM) PRO/Wireless 2100
chipset.
So finally all three parts of the Centrino technology are supported.
The driver also supports WLAN chipsets made by Atheros, Broadcom, Intersil and
Realtek. TuxMobil has
tested it on an ASUS M2400N
laptop
and it worked out-of-the-box. Though unfortunately the
driver is not Open Source. Intel has also announced a driver, but whether
this will be released as Open Source or not is still unclear. Nevertheless Centrino(TM)
laptops are already very popular in the Linux community. For almost all
Centrino based laptops there are installation reports available."
