Most of the 802.11b devices with Atmel chips in them have the AT76C503A, but of those devices some have a radio made by Intersil (mostly older devices), and some have a radio made by RF Micro Devices (RFMD) (mostly newer devices).
Its important to know which radio your wireless device has, because it affects how you compile the driver, and this results in a different name for the resulting driver module.
There are two revisions of the Netgear MA101 that we know of: Revision A and Revision B, and they both look the same.
To identify a usb wireless device there are a couple of things to check. The easiest are:
After you plug in a USB device, type
dmesg and you should see a log entry like:
usb.c: USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x864/0x4100) is not claimed by any active driver
You can also run
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices to find out about devices already connected
to your computer.
Compare the vid/pid against the numbers below, or against the entries in the
USB device table.
This is obviously the older of the two. It has the following properties:
Most recently bought MA101's appear to be of this type.
