I know that somehow, I think the kernel, must look for the wireless
hardware and then read it and determine what it is, and then choose the
proper kernel drivers to make wireless work. I have a Atheros wireless
device on my laptop and it seems to be using ath_? devices. One is
called ath_pci and this makes me guess it is the thing that finds the
hardware. Then ath5k is the driver the kernel uses to make wireless work.
Am I full of it, or is this about how it works. I need to know so I
can check the Jaunty updates for a problem.
