Linux wireless LAN support; manufacturer



This list is arranged in several columns: Manufacturer, wireless lan type, product ID, Vendor and product code, host I/F, chipset, driver, works native with Linux and additional comments (depending on the search you did, one of the columns is the header).
Drivers are defined as Linux native drivers, so no Linuxant driverloader or Ndiswrapper.
For more info on specific chipset development, and which drivers are available for which cards (yes, there are more drivers available for some cards), checkout Jean Tourrilhes page. His page contains some outlines about the driver development, history, versions and maintainers.

Whether it's known to work with Linux, is defined with a colour code:


This list is a work in progress, it should give you an indication of what is supported, it is by no means guaranteed that it should work for you!
Please e-mail me your experience (remove the NOSPAM from the e-mail address).
