FW: Request for driver development

Hi Greg,

I will need to confirm what the ID's are as some use the Atheros default
while others are changed to our internal ID's. The non standard frequencies
may need some tweaking but I will also need to verify what specific chipsets
you already have drivers for and what ones you may not.
As I am new in regards to working with the opensource community, may I ask
if there is anything you may need from a company n our position as well? We
have many customers working with opensource drivers for our devices as well
as firmware packages and they are all pushing us to take a proactive
approach to assisting the community, this assisting them.

Thank you

As all of these devices are based on Atheros chipsets, are you sure that
Linux doesn't already support them today?

What is the PCI and USB vendor/device ids of the different devices you
are wishing to support?
