I think it would be cleverer to use a PC platform that supported 3rd party hardware. I thought Macs came with the airport adapter? I bought a couple of wireless USB sticks to bypass the unresponsive bg of my Dell. Or sign in with one of these services Sign in with Facebook. Most of my work work that is, my “daytime job” can easily be done using any terminal with an SSH client. Considering the pace of Linux development, I really wouldn’t consider what’s on the CD that comes with a card, because drivers will have been updated in the 6 months that CD has been sitting in a warehouse.

As to one man writing a driver, isn’t that common as well? He wrote a kernel.

RaLink provide source on the website although, like I say, this probably isn’t the driver you want to use yourself as an end-user. I bought a couple of wireless USB sticks to bypass the unresponsive bg of my Dell. The only thing WPA is “vulnerable” to, as far as I can tell, is dictionary attacks. You might well use it with d Mac that came without wireless. So, yeah, a good number of people have written an OS from scratch, especially if you consider things about as complex as MS-DOS ‘operating systems’.
I can change 3945abb MAC on my 3945bg problem. Direct links to app demos unrelated to programming will be removed. And the 3945aby drivers for the broadcom and atheros chips that macs ship with, simply returns with “not supported” when asked to send out a raw Would it be wrong to say that the Linux kernel wouldn’t exist in its current form if it wasn’t for gcc?
Posted February 28, It is likely that the kernel took less than a man-year.

Man writes entire operating system from scratch. It took me about a year to do it in in an assembly language for a new in-house designed minicomputer. Try a mac with the first byte set to zero. Check out our faq.
T uses half sized cards or open up your Laptop. Is the Intel BG better? Some the the things Stallman has said are really out there, but I can appreciate the passion. If there is no code in your link, it probably doesn’t belong here.
Depending on your setup, you could have an unsecured wifi with MAC-address filtering, then tunnel to a secure, cabled server and do your stuff over the tunnel. Linus didn’t write a shell, a c library, or a set of coreutils; those are generally considered core components of an operating system. Wow those things sucked. The difference is that it would at least stop random people from eating your bandwidth.
Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Wireless Products
Toshiba’s usually only came with two different wireless cards, an Intel or an Atheros Atheros mainly on the low-end models. I used to fix Toshiba laptops, the model numbers just won’t leave my head.
Are you interested in promoting your own content? In the past there have been one or two PCI cards known to work in PowerMacs which are the same chipset as Apple used for their internal wireless cards branded “Airport” and which were mistakenly recognised as Airport cards by the OS X with only a minor hack editing a text file.
I never could get it to work. This card was important in that a lot of Dell laptops ship with it and none of those people could nac wireless without buying a card that was supported.
Unfortunately the driver didn’t appear like an Airport card, so didn’t use Apple’s own wireless connection GUI the way this one does.
Apple has not documented this beyond making the header files available. Guy writes Reddit comment from scratch.
Intel Wireless Driver for Snow Leopard [Hackintosh]
There’s an effort to port the Linux drivers over to OS X, but to this day I don’t think they’ve made much progress. In my opinion Apple already tacitly supports this, by making the headers available, without which it would’ve been impossible to even get the thing to compile.
Yeah, I should have mentioned that this experience was a couple years ago
