This sounds hopeful. I did get a reply from Ambicom, but only to say their engineers are on vacation and that they'll get back to me later. I understand vendor support is a second-tier component, but perhaps they have some leads as well as support.

Sounds like a significant first objective is to find that 2.4 driver.

there should be a link on the earlier paces somwhere, its actually your best bet but if they are willing to put you in touch with engineers then thats a small win

keep in mind that the code they give you for the kernel will still most likly need some hacking as the vendors tend to like making a closed source user space control deamon that does some of the heavy lifting, or they come up with somthing that only does exacttly what the client wants and nothing else

Well, Ambicom got back to me, with a doubtless business-wise but somewhat disappointing reply. They indicate that the WL54-CF uses the Marvell 8385, and that's all they can provide in the way of help.

I've also searched the forum and googled quite a bit, without hitting on the 2.4 driver.

At this point, unless there's a path forward along the lines of a) finding the 2.4 driver, cool.gif locating help to create the driver, or c) potentially contactin Marvell for help, I'll need to return my card and look for another solution.

Rather late in this thread, but is it true that any card with the same manfid is essentially the same card? I've got an I-O Data WN-G54/CF with the same manfid 0x02df, 0x8103.

Promisingly, I've found this page which seems to be an effort to write drivers:

http://projects.linuxtogo.org/projects/marvell8385/

Then there's this:

I just haven't had time yet to figure out how to put all this together under pdaxrom.

good research!

looking a the linuxtogo project it seems the driver is partly working, looks as if user "hrw" is on the case, so I am now hopeful of success!

the second link about netgear is, I'm afraid, bad news as it uses windows driver with ndis wrapper. huh.gif
