Summary

  • Model - This is the full device model as noted on the box.
  • Chipset - Chipset vendor name, chipset name, vendor code, and device code. For example, if one was looking for a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep Network
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8176] (rev 01)

    It's the 'Realtek', 'RTL8188CE', and '[10ec:8176] (rev 01)'.

  • Driver - For a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network | grep Kernel
            Kernel driver in use: rtl8192ce

    It's the 'rtl8192ce'.

  • Works "out of the box"
    • Yes - It works perfectly with no manual modifications, or degraded performance.
    • No - It doesn't work at all, has degraded performance, or requires manual configuration to make it work. Please add a comment to what you had to do to get it to work if this was possible, as well as a URL to an outstanding Launchpad bug report to address the issues encountered.

You need to edit 2 config files to get the right driver. See WifiDocs/Device/Proxim RangeLAN-DS.
