  1. Q: support for AVM Fritz! WLAN USB in kernel 2.6.25+

    Commit 782e70c6fc2290a0395850e8e02583b8b62264d8, which went into
    2.6.25, broke AVM's closed-source driver for this device:

    ID 057c:62ff AVM GmbH WLAN USB v1.1 (cdrom mode)
    ID 057c:6201 AVM GmbH WLAN USB v1.1

    Is there an open source alternative for that driver, or do systems
    with that device have to stay with kernel 2.6.24?

    Thanks,
    Tilman

    USB: mark USB drivers as being GPL only

    It would.

    There doesn't seem to be one in-tree. But linux-usb and/or linux-wireless
    might be better places to ask.

    It seems that way.
