I have a ASUS F5SL notebook and my WLAN works only with this snapshot:
http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special/madwifi-ng-r3366 + ar5007.tar.gz
And this download no longer works. Fortunately, I got this snapshot from
someone per mail.
But unfortunately it does not work with 2.6.26, so I patched this snapshot
painful for 2.6.26. Then works the WLAN fine. But unfortunately I deleted
the patched version.
Therefore, I wanted to ask whether it is once again a new snapshot, which
supports my Wi-Fi chip + 2.6.26. A current trunk-checkout doesn't work with
my WLAN chip.

This download (without the spaces around the "+") works fine, but the code
that once was contained in there has become outdated and obsolete. If you
had looked at the content of the file you would have noticed the README
file (it's the only file in the tarball), thus now knew about the
madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6 branch and the related snapshot(s).
