Please add support for the new ACX chip from Texas
Instruments - TNETW1130 (802.11a/b/g) - present on
the new U.S. Robotics 100Mbits USR5410 pcmcia card
and USR5416 pci card.

These are great cards, please help to support them on
Linux.

I believe this is the best place for asking this as you
already have great knowledge with the ACX100 and the
new chip shouldn't be that diferent, I guess! Maybe it
could even be done using the same module for both
chips.

Thanx in advance and keep up you're great work.

    According to TI the tnetw1130 chipset is also called acx111
    and is compatible with the acx100 and acx110 chipsets.

    Oliver Mihatsch is currently having quite some fun trying to
    get the 1130 to work ;-)

    Great news :p.

    I would be more than willing to help iron out this new version
    of the driver, with support for the ACX111 (TNETW1130). If
    Oliver Mihatsch wants any help trying the driver please let me
    know.

    Again thanx.

    0.2.0pre6_plus_fixes14 has some initial 1130 support.
    Nothing actually working yet, though.

    Hi,

    i fear even more vendors will use this chip (ACX111).
    I purchased today a Netgear WG311 which was recently
    powered by a prism54 chip (native linux driver available). So
    Netgear f*cked me with their version "v2" of this pci card.
    If you need another tester, i will quickly raise my hand ;-)

    I just bought this card as it showed up on several Linux driver
    sites. (Or, at least I thought it did... looks like most of then
    are either missing the g or the +!)

    Sign me up for the tester group. I know C and embdedded
    systems well but I haven't done much for Linux. Let me know
    if there is anything I can do to help...

    - Jason

    I'd consider this sorta implemented now, closing. :-)
