poplars, the source is available since a year too. If you had read this thread or my original thread, then you wld have known that.

MacMaui, I doubt that it will be easier (or more difficult) to code a driver for Leopard really. Unless apple plans on releasing a free IEEE80211Family framework in Leopard. I havent heard of anything like that, however I may be wrong.
for your convenience find source code and building instructions here:
http://forum.osx86pr...h...275&hl=tuxx



maybe i could set up a public mercurial repository for future development of the driver.
so everyone can checkout the current work state :D

Hi, i am kind of new here,
all i am wondering is,
if i install osx86 onto my laptop with intel 2200bg wlan, is there a working driver i can use at the moment to go online, and if there isnt, how long will it be before one is made?

Well, if you had read a little of this thread, just the last posts, you could have understood that there is no working driver for 2200bg chipset. Tuxx had began writing one, so did Aroman. Both have dropped the project, and thus the release of such a driver depends on someone will to continue development till its end.

As said before...I just setup a mercurial version tracking repository for iwi2200 at http://linwizard.maui.at/iwi2200

Anyone who wishes to push developing on this further can gain write access to the repository by sending me your public ssh key. Find more information about checkin out mercurial etc. at http://www.selenic.c.../wiki/index.cgi

sound's good. I'll contribute where I can, I've been really busy lately but I'm going to start learning programming soon.


good to see this project gaining interest again! :blink:

I just gave up on the Intel wireless card. I had a 3915 a/b/g in mine and just went with a Broadcom instead. I have far fewer problems in windows now and it's supported by OSX. Infact, I no longer have wireless issues in windows. I had so much trouble with the intel one that I just gave it away.

I know it doesn't help with the drivers, but when a fully supported Broadcom MiniPCI card can easily be had for less than $15 it seems like a simple and cheap solution.

Just my two cents...

can someone link me to such a card that's not ebay? hehe, thanks.

there are some, you can try dell, but it's not exactly the same price... There are some shops which sell laptops parts, try to find it in google, but all i saw when i searched was at least 2 times more expensive.
Good luck!

Ebay might be your best bet for the card, but I did get mine directly from Dell.

I was having quite a lot of problems with the intel wireless card and the sent me the Broadcom one free of charge. They even sent some of the little stickers that have your hardware info and updated my hardware listing in their database. This didn't hapen over night, though. I had to suffer though many long hours with the tech support and it took nearly 4 months of dealing with BSODs and reinstals of winders.

The fact that I had that many issues with the intel card is why they sent a new one for free. I don't know how good your "social engineering" skills are or if you can even get them to send you one, but at least you that it is possible. I think it helped that I also got the three year support package and accident coverage. I hope that helps.

my social engeneering skills rock, but they're not good enough to get a different wireless card for an already expired laptop warrentee....


I was actually able to get a new DVD-RW+ drive out of them for free after my warrentee, that's how good I am :(.

but I had reported a problem prior to my warrentee expiring.

also, I bought a atheros mini-pci card off of ebay for 25 bucks, it should work perfectly.

thanks

I just finished reading the thread, I am very impressed with the development of the driver. I think its a do-able project. I want to cheer future coders who will take upon this task. The community is eager to see a SUPER CODER who are willing to put their time to this development. Many thanks to all who have started and contributed to this driver.
http://sourceforge.n...group_id=147845
and to all that i did not mention.

Tuxx many compliments and salute for your professionalism in your response through out the thread.

Gentle reminder to others: before posting, please read the thread from the beginning

good luck and please keep the project running,
dinokpir

I've decided on this, if you guys can get this driver working, or the driver for a Linksys WPC54G ver. 3
I will pay $200 divided amongst the ones who figured it out, so if you can do it on your own, you just made $200!
I'm just glad to see that everyone has taken an interest in this subject :)

Use rentacoder.com as a platform for your venture - it's exactly what you need for what you are trying to achieve here. I had a project like this here accomplished via rentacoder before, it is 100% safe and transparent for BOTH sides (potential buyer and programmer) no matter where on the planet they are located at. See if you can fill up a monetary pool via rac, too.

Yep that would be a great idea.
I think i would also put a few bucks in the bucket.
