The prism54 Driver supports all Prism Frisbee, Prism GT, Prism Duette and Prism Indigo chipset based wireless cards. This file attempts to list all of the cards that use these chipsets. Note: Support for Xbow/Javelin will not be supported anytime soon.
|Chipset||Marketing Name||Default PCI ID||802.11a Capable||802.11b Capable||802.11g Capable|
We have a problem. Manufacturers started buying the SoftMAC chipsets, which are not yet supported and may never be, as drop-in-replacements for the FullMAC chipsets without changing PCI IDs and apparently sometimes not changing even the FCC ID. That said, you are better off first testing a card before buying it. If you can’t test a card and want Linux support, I can recommend you just not buy a prism 802.11g based chipset for now.
So now what? Well, we have the Centrino and Ralink. More to come soon
