Intel® Wireless for Linux*

This project provides an API allowing system developers to easily access Intel hardware wireless capabilities written into the Linux kernel. Intel's wireless project enables Linux kernels 2.6.24 and up, eliminating the need for a special driver if you are using one of these versions. Through the Linux kernel, this work finds its way into major (Chrome*, Ubuntu*, Fedora*) and minor distributions embedded Linux distributions as well.

Description

This Project Provides:  Wireless hardware API source code.
