Description of problem:
An Enhancement Request: 
I'd like to see the HostAP pcmcia/wireless modules be optionally 
included and maintained in the standard Fedora distribution.  A few 
people have compiled the kernal mods against RedHat 8 and 9 without 
error.  Considering the ubiquitous nature of wireless networking, it 
would be wonderful to include this as a standard part of Fedora Core.
See http://hostap.epitest.fi/ for more information.

work is ongoing to improve the in-kernel wireless drivers.
Fedora will continue to use these.

Comment 2 Val Schmidt 2004-11-19 14:06:53 UTC
Dave, can you (or someone else) comment on this on-going work or point to further 
information? Is AP functionality being implemented any time soon? Will wds links be 

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2005-09-01 15:47:41 UTC
Take a look at the 2.6.13-mm kernel and you'll get a good picture where the
wireless stuff is at right now.
