Linux drivers for Centrino

Finally Intel announced Linux support for Centrino Laptops. I signed the petition the day I got my laptop. I already wondered whether it’s possible to replace the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 mini-PCI card with one that’s well supported on Linux. (I heard it’s a crappy chipset anyway) So hopefully I can resurrect my Debian installation soon.

Thanks to Marcus pointing me on that.

  • Yes, I read at slashdot [1] about it. Amazing stuff!

    But I still prefer native drivers ;)

  • Mate, have you seen Linuxant - it lets you use Windows NDIS drivers under Linux, perhaps thats a solution till some native drivers become available :)
  • I use the Proxim Orinoco 802.11a/b/g Gold card mate - works well under Linux with the GPL 'madwifi' driver at sourceforge :)
