Subject[ANNOUNCE] d80211 based driver for Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
Please hold all questions until I am done with this email.  Thank you.

We are pleased to announce the availability of a new driver for the
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter. This new driver
uses the new d80211 subsystem previously only available as part of the
wireless-dev tree.

You can find the new driver, and additional information about it, here:

Within the new driver package are sources which we plan to submit for
kernel inclusion as well as scripts and patches which create a version
of the driver which can be loaded into kernels based on 2.6.18 and newer
(provided you have installed the d80211 subsystem as well) The README
document can walk you through pretty quickly.

Since a lot of our users are not able to move to the latest versions of
the Linux kernel, we have put together a d80211 package allowing the
installation of the d80211 subsystem into an existing kernel image
without the need to migrate to wireless-dev, or upgrade to a newer
kernel at all (assuming you are using 2.6.18 or newer).

You can find that package at:

Ok. Now... any questions?
