Please update this page with the status of each wireless NIC that is tested. Try to test a Windows XP driver and if that fails try a Windows 2000 driver (but be sure to mention the failure of the XP driver in your comments). AS YOU CAN SEE, THE LIST IS IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER. PLEASE KEEP IT THIS WAY.

You have just to use the wlanconf tool to configure the WLAN adapter,but before you will need to install the XP driver of the card.

"wlanconf -c <SSID>" connects to an infrastructure network. Adding the "-a" option connects to (or creates) an ad-hoc network. Adding "-w <WEP>" will enable WEP encryption using the supplied key. "wlanconf -s" will scan and display a list of the surrounding networks and various attributes like signal strength, SSID, BSSID, network mode, and supported rates "wlanconf" will display the current WLAN configuration details if the adapter is connected.

The DHCP service will detect network changes and refresh its state accordingly when associating with a new wireless network

Please retest all NICs that have not been tested since at least r55000.
