BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz, of Tracker.NewFS, SVG, Haiku USB, Qemu, and countless other cool-things-to-have fame has checked in Haiku's first wireless network driver, for the Intel Pro Wireless 2100. This chipset, which inhabits nearly all early Centrino-badged devices, is amongst the more common wireless hardware found in recent computers. It works on r5 as well.

Any chance in their being support for us Broadcom WiFi card users? Maybe a BeOS/Haiku version of NDis Wrapper, perhaps?

There have been some musings about someone porting the ndis wrapper - but AFAIK, nobody has seriously stepped up to the plate to attempt it.
