It's an Intersil chipset. Intersil used the Prism interface for all their
old cards, but alas, the current prism drivers do not work with it.
Apparently they haven't published programming details for their new 802.11g
chipset. They may use a slightly altered interface requiring only a small
update to the driver code.
The best thing to do is to write Intersil and request specs on their 802.11g
chipsets. Hopefully, if enough people ask they will rise to the occassion
and release specs. Optionally you can ask Broadcom though they haven't been
helpful in the past.
