Re: Intel Wireless Wifi Link 5100 on Hardy
I can confirm that this driver does NOT work with 2.6.27-rc8 on an Intel Centrino 2 Duo (64-bit) with an Intel 5100 AGN. This includes trying with the latest versions of compat-wireless, both with support compiled into the kernel and with relying totally on the compat-wireless modules. This also includes using the config.mk hacks.

This card is coming out in a lot of new laptops. Linux needs support for this badly.
