LINUXANT FIRST AGAIN WITH SUPPORT FOR NEXT GENERATION CENTRINO WLAN
MONTREAL, QC Feb. 20, 2004 - Linuxant inc. is proud to announce the immediate availability of DriverLoader™ 1.6, featuring support for Intel's next-generation PRO/Wireless 2200BG card with 54mbps 802.11g technology and state-of-the-art Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security for Centrino systems.
DriverLoader™ is a revolutionary compatibility-wrapper allowing standard Windows NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) drivers shipped by hardware vendors to be used as-is on Linux x86 systems.
Thousands of people have decided to stop waiting for Intel to release native Linux drivers, and have been installing DriverLoader™ to use their Centrino Wireless LAN devices under Linux today.
The latest release of DriverLoader can be downloaded from Linuxant's web site and also features stability improvements and compatibility with Intel PRO/Wireless (Centrino), Broadcom, Intersil Prism GT/Duette/Indigo, Cisco, INPROCOMM, Realtek, Texas Instruments, Atheros, and other Wireless LAN drivers for Windows.
The software is easy to install on standard Linux distributions (RedHat/Fedora, SuSE, Mandrake, TurboLinux, Debian, and derivatives) with any recent 2.4 or 2.6 kernel, and includes a user-friendly Web-based configuration system. Current users of DriverLoader can upgrade
