 12           A driver for 802.11b wireless cards based on the "Hermes" or
 13           Intersil HFA384x (Prism 2) MAC controller.  This includes the vast
 14           majority of the PCMCIA 802.11b cards (which are nearly all rebadges)
 15           - except for the Cisco/Aironet cards.  Cards supported include the
 16           Apple Airport (not a PCMCIA card), WavelanIEEE/Orinoco,
 17           Cabletron/EnteraSys Roamabout, ELSA AirLancer, MELCO Buffalo, Avaya,
 18           IBM High Rate Wireless, Farralon Syyline, Samsung MagicLAN, Netgear
 19           MA401, LinkSys WPC-11, D-Link DWL-650, 3Com AirConnect, Intel
 20           IPW2011, and Symbol Spectrum24 High Rate amongst others.
 22           This option includes the guts of the driver, but in order to
 23           actually use a card you will also need to enable support for PCMCIA
 24           Hermes cards, PLX9052 based PCI adaptors or the Apple Airport below.
 26           You will also very likely also need the Wireless Tools in order to
 27           configure your card and that /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts works :

 47           on startup.  The firmware will remain cached until the
 48           driver is unloaded.  The cache uses 64K of RAM.
 50           Otherwise load the firmware from userspace as required.  In
 51           this case the driver should be unloaded and restarted
 52           whenever the firmware is changed.
 54           If you are not sure, say Y.

 61           built into the Macintosh iBook and other recent PowerPC-based
 62           Macintosh machines. This is essentially a Lucent Orinoco card with
 63           a non-standard interface.
 65           This driver does not support the Airport Extreme (802.11b/g). Use

 73           orinoco) driver when used in PLX9052 based PCI adaptors.  These
 74           adaptors are not a full PCMCIA controller but act as a more limited
 75           PCI <-> PCMCIA bridge.  Several vendors sell such adaptors so that
 76           802.11b PCMCIA cards can be used in desktop machines.  The Netgear
 77           MA301 is such an adaptor.

104           PCMCIA cards bundled with PCI<->PCMCIA adaptors which are also
105           common.  Some of the built-in wireless adaptors in laptops are of

114           EnteraSys RoamAbout 802.11, ELSA Airlancer, Melco Buffalo and
115           others).  It should also be usable on various Prism II based cards
116           such as the Linksys, D-Link and Farallon Skyline.  It should also
117           work on Symbol cards such as the 3Com AirConnect and Ericsson WLAN.
