   # Current state of wifi drivers
   
 We currently have 27 wifi drivers in the source tree. A few of them have already been converted for the wifi renewal branch (see [[Wifi renewal on hg]]).  We currently have 27 wifi drivers in the source tree.

 Currently the drivers for urtwn(4) and rtwn(4) are converted, the former using usbwifi (see [[tutorials/Converting USB drivers to usbwifi(9)]]), but it is not clear if there is a unified aproach that lets the usb frontend profit from usbwifi while not stopping the usb and the other frontends from sharing most parts of the driver - this still has to be evaluated.  Currently the drivers for urtwn(4) and rtwn(4) are converted, the former using usbwifi (see [[tutorials/Converting USB drivers to usbwifi(9)]]), but it is not clear if there is a unified aproach that lets the usb frontend profit from usbwifi while not stopping the usb and the other frontends from sharing most parts of the driver - this still has to be evaluated.
   
 Other drivers sharing similar chipsets accross different busses including usb have not yet been converted, they are marked with +/-/? in the usbwifi column of above table.  Other drivers sharing similar chipsets accross different busses including usb have not yet been converted, they are marked with +/-/? in the usbwifi column of above table.
   
   # Looking for hardware
   
   For every chipset without a [1] mark in the table above, I am looking for hardware:
   
    * if you have spare wifi hardware for PCI, pcmcia or cardbus and would be willing to donate it to a good home, please contact me privately (I am in germany, shipping from within europe and UK should be cheap)
   
    * if you have a link where to buy a cheap USB or PCIe wifi dongle with known chipset that is not marked [1] in above table, please also contact me privately
