ACX100 Wireless network driver project

This project has working code for the TI ACX100 chip which the DWL-520+ uses (and many other cards). Additionally, you will need the firmware off Dlink's ftp sever. I successfully downloaded the source code and compiled it on a Debian unstable box running a custom 2.4.22 kernel. The interface showed up as wlan0 and the tools from wireless-tools worked (iwconfig).
