"Wireless networking on Linux is entering a new era. An era of bliss and ease; where users and network administrators have abundant time for relaxing lie-abouts on sunny warm hills because their wireless systems are humming along contentedly, instead of being vexing and unreliable. OK, so maybe it's not going to be quite that Utopian, but things are definitely looking up, thanks to a lot of hard work by a lot of talented developers. So what's going to be different? A brand-new wireless LAN kernel stack, which is going to reduce the current WLAN herd-of-cats approach to a single unified subsystem that supports all wireless drivers."
