 +p54 is the mac80211 stack dependent wireless driver, it supports softMAC Intersil/​Conexant Prism GT, fullMAC Intersil Prism GT, as well as  Intersil/​Conexant Prism GT USB dongle based chipsets. This driver has been incorporated into kernel since 2.6.26.

 +Not to be confused with [[prism54]] driver which is dependent on the legacy ieee80211 stackhas injection ​support but only supports Intersil Prism GT fullMAC cards. 
 + 
 +Injection patches are available but you will need to patch it against the mac80211 stack and recompile the driver. It is recommended ​that you have at least kernel 2.6.28 or above as p54 may have issues recognising firmware properly.
  
 More information on how to get the driver working can be found at [[http://​wireless.kernel.org/​en/​users/​Drivers/​p54]]. If you have difficulty understanding what filename should the firmware be named as for it to work, once you plug the device in, check the last few lines of dmesg or /​var/​log/​messages for information. More information on how to get the driver working can be found at [[http://​wireless.kernel.org/​en/​users/​Drivers/​p54]].
