With Linux becoming a viable alternative to commercial operating systems and the recent explosion of wireless technologies, Symbol Technologies is seeking a driver that will allow them to tap into the Linux market. This project created a Linux device driver for the PCMCIA version of Symbol's Spectrum24 series wireless network card. This driver was implemented and tested with Linux kernel 2.2.x and released under GPL. Its performance is comparable to the Windows version of the driver for the same card.
