The only support that I am aware of is for the Atheros a, a/b, and a/b/g
chipsets. Atheros has released a binary only driver (still very beta) -
for more info see:

Also, there is an effort to create an opensource driver for this
hardware at:

This is driver is in its very early stages, only useful for serious

I am not aware of any drivers or efforts involving the Broadcom b/g
chipset, which seems to be the dominant chipset for b/g products.
(Although I don't know what radio the products you mentioned are based on.)
