You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. When used with a user space daemon, the combination of the Host AP driver and hostapd daemon includes additional features. Dual voltage PC Card slots will accept cards keyed for either voltage. The version in the kernel tree should be used instead of this external hostap-driver package. Cards in this type of adapter should only be removed when the machine is powered down.

Others, Cardbus wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0: Only one virtual interface may be configured at a time. Only relatively recent ver- sions of Intersil firmware supports WPA. All chipsets provide a similar interface to the driver.
Older versions of the firmware that are supported may severely limit the abil- ity to use these cards in newer networks. Wireless adaptors which use the Prism chipset are known for compatibility, and are preferred for specialist applications such as packet capture.

See interrsil at some website or other The driver has also various features for development debugging and for researching IEEE Copyright cJouni Malinen and contributors. The external releases are only for older kernel versions and all the future development will be in the main kernel tree. This man page comes from OpenBSD. The CardBus interface was defined as a 3.
Host AP Linux driver for Intersil Prism2//3 wireless LAN cards
This driver implements basic functionality needed to initialize and configure Prism2-based cards, to send and receive frames, and to gather statistics. The following cards are among those supported by the wi driver: Unfortunately the driver does not pism downloading new firmware to the card so if new firmware is needed users will have to boot a different system to accomplish this.
Very old versions of firmware are not supported at all. The PCI adapters come in two flavors: This does not require any special firmware for the wireless LAN card.

A significant drop in performance from one card to the next most often means that the card is bad. A “key” was defined on the edge of the PC Card connector to prevent 3.
Some features might also require latest beta version. However, further cost reductions caused a new, lighter firmware to be designed and the amount of on-chip memory to shrink, making it impossible to run the older version of the firmware on the latest chips.
