Netgear MA111

Does anyone know if Netgear MA111 still uses the Prism chipset? Thanks.

Yes. It should work with the wlan-ng driver.

Netgear support told me they're using the prism chipset but I was worried because of the following link:

They're saying that the chipset has been changed to SIS162, and I want a prism chipset to make it work as an access point.

Is the prism chipset particularly good for using as an access point? I'd like to do something like this, but didn't know about using ad-hoc to connect my wireless pc's.

There's a lot of websites on how you can build an access point on linux with just a wireless adapter, but it must have a prism 2/2.5/3 chipset, so that it would be possible to send certain management frames. I've been going through a lot of sites of wireless adapters manufacturers but most of them have stopped using this chipset for some reason. Hope I'll manage to find one :(

I've got a MA111 connected to my Tivo right now. I may have to pull it outta there and build me a linux router.

how to use and install the wlan-ng driver?
I have RedHat9 totally un-touched.... It didnt recognize my USB wireless when it installed although Linux did find my wired, problem is I need the wireless because I am unable to wire my way up here
Any instructions on use of that driver?
