Drivers for Netgear WAB501 (Atheros AR5001X)?


Anyone know of linux drivers for the Netgear WAB501 wireless-a/b pcmcia card? It uses the Atheros AR5001X chipset.


Thx for any help in advance.

There's work started on the atheros card. Dunno how far its progressed really:

http://team.vantronix.net/ar5k/

Your card's not in their shortlist, but you may be able to just hack together an /etc/pcmcia/config entry from the mandfid entry off of:

/sbin/cardctl ident

Cheers,

Thanks, I had found that though. I actually don't think that'll work w/the new wireless-a/b cards.
