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.

When it comes to drivers, GPL isn't outside the realm of Haiku. Since drivers depend on the kernel and other parts of the OS, and not the other way around, there is really no political disadvantage to using GPL'd driver code.

There are already GPL drivers and other code in the tree.
