Bug#221709: ITP: at76c503a-source -- at76c503a driver source

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : at76c503a-source
  Version         : 0.11.beta5
* URL             : Oliver Kurth <oku at masqmail dot cx>
* License         : GPL
  Description     : at76c503a driver source

 Alternative driver for the Atmel AT76C503A based USB WLAN adapters. This driver
 is for linux kernel versions 2.4.X.
 Currently, the driver has some limitations:
    * no promiscous, monitor or station mode and no support for libpcap, i.e.
      it does not work with Kismet or Airsnort and it cannot act as an WLAN
      access point. This is a restriction imposed by the current firmware.
    * The firmware for Intersil radios is old (Atmel doesn't update it anymore)
      and has more restrictions.
