ATMEL IEEE 802.11b WLAN Driver
I didn't have any problems configuring the WiPort either. My problem came about trying to figure out how to use it.

I did not find any low-level commands for external control of the network operation. This was a few months ago, so they may have updated their firmware or documented more since then.
It works as described and the source code is available for additional money. It is not too much more than the WiPort development kit, and I found it much more suitable to my application.
Rabbit has a kit that can do this. And vice versa. Lantronix provides a virtual serial port driver which works fine - ex: As to seeking access points - not sure why ATMEL IEEE 802.11b WLAN have to do this. This is just ordinary Then put one or more cheap WiFi bridges in ad-hoc mode to get the RF coverage you want. Not saying WiPort is the best, but the module is plug and play with these features. Developing all that would be a lot of work.
Don't DIY! The Atmel solution provides a high performance solution with exceptional throughput and low power consumption. The low power consumption is critical in battery-powered products.
Atmel has achieved a solution that not only conserves power, but also does ATMEL IEEE 802.11b WLAN sacrifice performance. After the acquisition by Cisco, the Aironet B was renamed Cisco series exact same hardware, new name. Like Lucent, Cisco offer different cards with different level of encryption.
The cards labelled feature no encryption, the cards labelled feature 40 bits encryption and the cards labelled feature bits encryption. Moreover, some versions of the Pcmcia card are sold with antenna but others without antennas.
Cisco has now released the Ciscoa new family of The Cisco also improves the performance of the AP and introduce greater security Radius authentication and co. For some strange reason, this hardware is slightly different from the regular Aironet PCI.

Cisco has also a wide range of IEEE The driver also has very complete WEP support. Ben also told me that the driver was able to recognise the PC cards, but more work would be needed there to get it fully working.
Recently, I've started adding Wireless Extension to this driver. Ben was kind enough to integrate properly my work in his driver. Then, Javier Achirica did an amazing job of completing Wireless Extension support power management, spy and coand this driver has one of the most complete Wireless Extension support of all. Then, Javier added to the driver the ATMEL IEEE 802.11b WLAN proprietary API, which allow communication with Cisco utilities see section 3.
All this amazing work is in the latest release from Ben 1. He ATMEL IEEE 802.11b WLAN wrote a couple of open source utilities allowing to dump all the register of the card and to flash new firmwares through this API. Later, the driver has been integrated in the Linux kernel 2. Javier has also added the ability to dump raw Then Javier did extensive work to fix locking SMP supportadd monitor mode and Wireless Scanning support in version 1.
Ben and Javier are no longer active. Dan has fixed various bug and kept the driver up to date in the kernel, and Matthieu has added WPA support.
