TI ACX100 (search TI's web site for information - but appears to be just flyers). D-Link have switched to using TI as their 802.11b chipset supplier, unforuntately for hostap users.
The ACX100 chipset offers a proprietary 22Mbps PBCC modulation scheme... non 802.11b compliant though (apparently it was considered for 802.11g but rejected)
