has anyone gotten an 802.11g card to work, and with WPA?

snag is at work they only want to run 11g and WPA (Apple airport extreme) on their wireless lan for security; there's only a vague chance they would drop it down to 802.11b (if the Senior Sysadmin decides to get an iPaq with wlan)... but will definitely stick with WPA.

I would get murdered if I put up my own access point (and rightly so!), so I'd have to use bluetooth, which is OK for surfing but not for file transfer.

I would be happy to choose ANY rom, and I have quite a lot of experience with linux and 802.11~ from hacking together an access point with the Keith Smith OpenSTA/OpenAP stuff on a eumitcom single board computer, so am not afraid of getting my hands dirty!

thanks for any thoughts

WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!

cant say how happy i am, i cross checked the tomsnetworkin article press release against the model numbers in the source code and look what i found


from the driver readme:
The driver in this package supports the network interface cards based on:
- WL60010, a.k.a. Hermes-II
- WL60040, a.k.a. Hermes-II.5

from the press release:
The WaveLAN Multimode Baseband Processor (WL64040), which is developed in 0.13 micron advanced CMOS technology, contains the complete signal processing functionality for both OFDM and CCK modulation. It also supports Agere's patented antenna diversity implementation, which provides enhanced data throughput and improved signal coverage. The baseband uses a 1.5V internal power supply to dramatically reduce the power dissipation of high-speed OFDM signal processing, significantly improving battery life. In addition, the baseband uses a novel method of iterative channel estimation to digitally enhance the tolerance of weak radio signals, ensuring reliable connections. The WL64040 baseband supports a digital interface to the WL60040 MAC, enabling system integration of the MAC with a simple interface to a single-chip radio module. The WaveLAN WL54240 SiGe-based, dual-band power amplifier includes analog power control for the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands and an on-chip power detector.

all i have to do know is get my hands on some hardware and i will try and get this thing working

by the way the driver i am talking about it the 7.22, it also contains some other goodies: The HCF directory contains firmware images to allow the card to operate in either station (STA) or Access Point (AP) mode

other problems include: This software can be compiled and installed with Linux kernel versions 2.4.x. Although this driver should compile for other CPUs as well, as of the date of this release, no CPU architectures other than x86 have been verified.

ie not tested on arm and only works for 2.4, just when i was looking at going to the 2.6 kernel on my c3k (see the open zaurus website)

i cant wait to try and get this working!
