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?
