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 to the latest version at no charge.
