Linux ndiswrapper (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/) with
Windows NDIS driver.
- Broadcom wl.o driver (old version only)
- This is a generic Linux driver for Broadcom IEEE 802.11a/g cards.
- However, it is proprietary driver that is not publicly available
- except for couple of exceptions, mainly Broadcom-based APs/wireless
- routers that use Linux. The driver binary can be downloaded, e.g.,
- from Linksys support site (http://www.linksys.com/support/gpl.asp)
- for Linksys WRT54G. The GPL tarball includes cross-compiler and
- the needed header file, wlioctl.h, for compiling wpa_supplicant.
- This driver support in wpa_supplicant is expected to work also with
- other devices based on Broadcom driver (assuming the driver includes
- client mode support). Please note that the newer Broadcom driver
- ("hybrid Linux driver") supports Linux wireless extensions and does
- not need (or even work) with the specific driver wrapper. Use -Dwext
- with that driver.
-
In theory, any driver that supports Linux wireless extensions can be
used with IEEE 802.1X (i.e., not WPA) when using ap_scan=0 option in
configuration file.
