Hi to ALL!

Just a silly question:

Does DragonFLY support cardbus devices?

Cardbus support is there, but it needs to be improved, eg. automatic attachments over the PCI bus etc.

I would like to give it a try if my atheros based WIFI worked!

Atheros stuff is probably going to be a little while because I and Joerg need to study the NET802.11 framework, fix some bugs in it and then import it.

	Once that is done, Atheros and new wireless drivers should be

Oh! by the way what about the ndis wrapper? I have also a rtl8081 (?) WIFI based card ( D-Link 610 )

NDIS is still to be ported, properly. I did some work on it a few months ago, had most of the pieces done; but I got distracted with more important parts of the kernel. Though, once the NET802.11 stack is done, NDIS support should not be extremely hard to port.
