Description : Source for the 802.11 (wireless) network stack for Linux
This package provides the source code for the 802.11 (wireless) network
stack module for the Linux kernel. Though it has been incorporated in
latest kernel versions, the bundled one might not be up-to-date to build
third-party wireless modules such as ipw2100 or ipw2200 which are common
on Centrino notebooks.
In order to compile these modules you need the kernel sources (or the
kernel-headers for the kernel-image packages from Debian). For compile
instructions look into /usr/share/doc/ieee80211-source/README.Debian or
simply use the module-assistant utility.
The project's homepage can be found here:
Note : I haven't found a clean solution to deal with the include files
that are needed by the ipw2?00-source packages.
