Unfortunately, I have just asked Hiroshi Noguchi about his progress with the
wavelan driver and received this reply:

(I assume he does not mind me redistributing this.. I hope he doesn't mind)

I have done nothing for WaveLAN, because I don't know which cards
are compatible with AirPort and AirPort products is not released
in Japan.

So it looks like we won't be seeing it for a while. If anyone has a list of
airport-compatible pc cards (lucent's wavelan PC card seems to be compatible,
but that's just from reading the web page), please send that list to Hiroshi's
email address.

If I had more money right now, I'd buy two and sent him one, so badly do I want
this driver! :)
