Description : Firmware for Atmel at76c50x wireless networking chips.
The drivers for these chips in the Linux 2.6.x kernel do not include
the firmware; this firmware needs to be loaded by the host on most
cards using these chips. This package provides the firmware images
which should be automatically loaded as needed by the hotplug
system. It also provides a small loader utility which can be used to
accomplish the same thing when hotplug is not in use.
It has not been possible to persuade Atmel to release the source for
this firmware, hence it is non-free and not included in the kernel
drivers. This package will have to go on non-free for the same reason.
