    - The Wavelan drivers saga
    - ------------------------
    -
    - By Jean Tourrilhes <jt@hpl.hp.com>
    -
    - The Wavelan is a Radio network adapter designed by
    -Lucent. Under this generic name is hidden quite a variety of hardware,
    -and many Linux driver to support it.
    - The get the full story on Wireless LANs, please consult :
    - http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/
    -
    -"wavelan" driver (old ISA Wavelan)
    -----------------
    - o Config : Network device -> Wireless LAN -> AT&T WaveLAN
    - o Location : .../drivers/net/wireless/wavelan*
    - o in-line doc : .../drivers/net/wireless/wavelan.p.h
    - o on-line doc :
    - http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Wavelan.html
    -
    - This is the driver for the ISA version of the first generation
    -of the Wavelan, now discontinued. The device is 2 Mb/s, composed of a
    -Intel 82586 controller and a Lucent Modem, and is NOT 802.11 compliant.
    - The driver has been tested with the following hardware :
    - o Wavelan ISA 915 MHz (full length ISA card)
    - o Wavelan ISA 915 MHz 2.0 (half length ISA card)
    - o Wavelan ISA 2.4 GHz (full length ISA card, fixed frequency)
    - o Wavelan ISA 2.4 GHz 2.0 (half length ISA card, frequency selectable)
    - o Above cards with the optional DES encryption feature
    -
    -"wavelan_cs" driver (old Pcmcia Wavelan)
    --------------------
    - o Config : Network device -> PCMCIA network ->
    - Pcmcia Wireless LAN -> AT&T/Lucent WaveLAN
    - o Location : .../drivers/net/pcmcia/wavelan*
    - o in-line doc : .../drivers/net/pcmcia/wavelan_cs.h
    - o on-line doc :
    - http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Wavelan.html
    -
    - This is the driver for the PCMCIA version of the first
    -generation of the Wavelan, now discontinued. The device is 2 Mb/s,
    -composed of a Intel 82593 controller (totally different from the 82586)
    -and a Lucent Modem, and NOT 802.11 compatible.
    - The driver has been tested with the following hardware :
    - o Wavelan Pcmcia 915 MHz 2.0 (Pcmcia card + separate
    - modem/antenna block)
    - o Wavelan Pcmcia 2.4 GHz 2.0 (Pcmcia card + separate
    - modem/antenna block)
    -
    -"wvlan_cs" driver (Wavelan IEEE, GPL)
    ------------------
    - o Config : Not yet in kernel
    - o Location : Pcmcia package 3.1.10+
    - o on-line doc : http://www.fasta.fh-dortmund.de/users/andy/wvlan/
    -
    - This is the driver for the current generation of Wavelan IEEE,
    -which is 802.11 compatible. Depending on version, it is 2 Mb/s or 11
    -Mb/s, with or without encryption, all implemented in Lucent specific
    -DSP (the Hermes).
    - This is a GPL full source PCMCIA driver (ISA is just a Pcmcia
    -card with ISA-Pcmcia bridge).
    -
    -"wavelan2_cs" driver (Wavelan IEEE, binary)
    ---------------------
    - o Config : Not yet in kernel
    - o Location : ftp://sourceforge.org/pcmcia/contrib/
    -
    - This driver support exactly the same hardware as the previous
    -driver, the main difference is that it is based on a binary library
    -and supported by Lucent.
    -
    - I hope it clears the confusion ;-)
