WLAN W500 (a/b/g)

Chipset:AR5212 (802.11a+b/g
Interface:Mini PCI
Antenna Connector:2-pin laptop
Device Information : unknown
Notes: This card (in HP nw8000 notebook) worked perfectly with older versions of madwifi/kernel however doesn't work with the new ones. The driver loads ok and everything seems to be just fine on software side but the wireless LED never lights up and no connection can be ever made. Last tested with madwifi 0.9.2 and kernel 2.6.15.
Other Notes/Resolution: If the card doesn't work, press the button to turn on/off the wifi once, and see if it starts working. The button is hardwired; while the LED is software based, and needs to be configured to work. Works fine in kernel 2.6.16 madwifi 0.9.2.

WLAN W400 (b/g)

Chipset:AR5211/2111 (802.11b/g)
