the things merged with this commit were regular network fixes that cameron did while coding wlan functionality, but affect whole network system, I think.

@pisarz - Let's not.

The answer is YES! Wireless now works in ReactOS. WPA/WPA2 encryption are not yet supported though.

Well, with ReactOS nothing is really supported.
Stuff may or may not work and when a bug report is filed, a developer may or may not try to fix it....

WLAN is currently supported in trunk and will be supported in 0.3.14. As for the driver support, I tested a cheap Realtek 8185 based PCI WLAN card and another developer tested an Atheros based card. I had a slight issue at first with mine but I easily identified the problem and fixed it (somebody didn't RTFM when implementing NdisGetCurrentSystemTime). If you guys could test your cards and file bugs or post logs here, I can try to get as many fixed as I can during the RC phase of 0.3.14. I don't anticipate many issues since these drivers likely had the same issues as regular Ethernet adapters which were already debugged and fixed prior to WLAN support being added.

Absolutely awesome! :shock: 8-)

I've always thought that W-LAN support would need several years of coding until it's available. Great job!
