The WirelessDriver is an open source driver supporting Prism/Prism2 wireless cards such as the WaveLAN/ORiNOCO, Cabletron, SkyLINE and D-link PCMCIA cards for use with MacOS X and the Darwin operating system from Apple.

We created this driver to provide wireless access (802.11b) to powerbook users with 3rd party PCMCIA cards.This driver supports many vendor cards, read the FAQ to see if yours is (or can be) supported.
