RaLink RT2570 USB Enhanced Driver

•Prism header can be toggled via iwpriv, no automatic changes which screwed up packet captures!
•MAC changing supported
•Support for Fragmentation Attack

Fragmentation support is now considered stable. For further details on the fragmentation attack see the paper from Andrea Bitteau:

1.5.0 version has some important fixes for kernel version 2.6.19 and above.

The serialmonkey CVS repository updated its driver from a new RaLink legacy one. Version 1.6.0 is the modification of this driver with fragmentation support, MAC changing and prism headers enabled by default. This driver seems to fix some threading, some SMP and some endianness issues. So it should be more stable than previous releases.

Version 1.6.1 works for 2.6.22 kernels and comes with some more stability improvements.

Version 1.6.2 with a new base version from serialmonkey CVS, all the patches from the previous version and support for 2.6.26 kernel.

Version 1.6.3 adds kernel 2.6.27 compatibility. NOTE: You may also try the mac80211 drivers included in 2.6.27 since these drivers are pretty nice too ;)

Version 1.6.4 adds compatibility with 2.6.29.
