About Prism HFA384x:

Intersil Prism 2/2.5/3 BeOS driver

http://patrick.lafarguette.free.fr/en/beos/hfa384x/

Introduction

This driver manages IEEE 802.11b wireless network adapters based on the Intersil Prism 2/2.5/3 (HFA3841 and HFA3842 MAC processors).

Features

The driver allows the network card to act as a station of a BSS (Basic Service Set) linked to an access point or as a station of an IBBS (Independent Basic Service Set) in a peer to peer network without an access point.
The WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is managed with keys of 40 or 104 bits for a global level of protection of 64 or 128 bits.
It is recommended to update the firmware of the adapter for optimal operation.
