Let's see, maybe you didn't read the paragraph where I said:
Or, perhaps it's not true that there are no free drivers for it. The
claim was also made that there was a single free driver out there for
use with ndiswrapper, but others claimed that the hardware in question
is already supported, and better, without the use of that driver. I
don't know whether this is true, but if it is true, I would appreciate
hearing why that should be treated differently than there being no
such free driver at all.
Is this CIPE? Or is that some other case?
