That why are these cards (Netgear WG511) are documented as being supported
in the CONFIG_PRISM54 help text. I asume the list was copied from the same
bad list of supported cards that made me buy one in the first place. If
there was no ndiswrapper support, I'd have been fooled to completely waste
my money, with ndiswrapper I can at least partially use it. I do neither
want to wait some years to use a by-then obsolete card nor can I help
developing a driver beyond doing some testing.

BTW: What about creating a "Native linux support" logo saying "If you find
a slot and plug it in, you can use it with a vanilla kernel on any arch and
get vendor support"? That would help against Netgear's faksimile products of
working models or ATI's claims for having "linux support".
