Wireless Networking for Open Solaris Configuration Tools and drivers

Well few days back I had complained about lack of Solaris (Intel x86) hardware support. Finally some good news out. Open Solaris team released the new Wi-Fi drivers for Intel’s Centrino chips. All of the drivers and tools produced by the team will be pre-released to the OpenSolaris community and then integrated into Solaris. The following drivers and tools are currently available:

  • wificonfig – Wireless Configuration Tool
  • ath – Wireless Driver for the Atheros 52xx Chipset
  • inetmenu – Network Configuration GUI Tool
  • ipw – Wireless Driver for the Intel Pro/Wireless 2100 Chipset
  • iwi – Wireless Driver for the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG/2915ABG Chipsets
  • cardbus – New Cardbus Driver With Support For 32-bit PC Cards (coming soon)
  • pcwl – Wireless Driver for Agere 11b and PrismII 11b Chipsets (coming soon)

This is really good development 🙂 More information and driver available from Solaris Community Laptop resource page.
