Before compiling wpa_supplicant, ensure your .config has atleast the following

CONFIG_DRIVER_WEXT=y
CONFIG_DRIVER_OTUS=y

$ wpa_supplicant -Dotus -i -c /path/to/wpa_supplicant.conf -d

Purpose of this release
------------------------

This should serve as documentation for eager developer to port
this driver to mac80211 to get a driver upstream. If you'd like
to help out users with this current driver feel free to send
patches to the git tree for this driver.

It should be noted though that this driver *is* usable.

Patch

Please note that a patch to update the firmware for use with the WN111v2 is also included in this file. The drivers are already patched for use with the WN111, so you do not need to patch it manually - but the patch is included for your convenience.
