Description Mikhail 2012-04-26 15:38:04 EDT
madWiMAX is a reverse-engineered Linux driver for mobile WiMAX (802.16e) devices based on Samsung CMC-730 chip. These devices are currently supported:

Samsung SWC-U200
Samsung SWC-E100
Samsung SWM-S10R (built in Samsung NC-10 netbook)


This devices very popular in Russia with WiMAX provider Yota.

Please accept this drivers in upstream Linux kernel.
Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2012-04-26 15:49:09 EDT
You, or someone with interest, need to actually submit this driver to the upstream kernel and work with them to get it included.  It would likely start in the staging directory.

Once it is included upstream in some form, Fedora would be able to enable it.
