Wireless communication technology is a modern alternative to traditional wired networking that relies on cables to connect digital devices together. Wireless technologies are widely used in both home and business computer networks. The Amiga has been left behind in this technological break thru but thanks to Neil Cafferkey AmigaOS 4.x users can still benefit from this technology. Prism2.device is a SANA-II network driver for 11Mbps wireless Ethernet cards based on the Prism II chipset and variants. It supports PCMCIA cards in the A1200/A600 and PCI cards in all AmigaOS 4 systems. This version of prism2.device supports WPA and WPA2 encryption, including both TKIP and CCMP (AES) encryption modes. However, not all hardware supports all encryption modes. Cards with Intersil firmware support WEP, TKIP and CCMP, while cards with Lucent/Agere firmware only support WEP and TKIP. See the guide included in the archive for details of compatible cards.
