James Ketrenos announced a new 80211 based driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection adapter. He explains, "this new driver uses the new d80211 subsystem previously only available as part of the wireless-dev tree."
When the question was asked if the driver was going to be pushed for inclusion into the mainline kernel it was noted, "hmmm...I think we need to spend a cycle or so in -mm. 2.6.22 seems more likely for mainline."
