Ok, so, in the product section of, they are labeled as:
"Wavelan IEEE 802.11 (bronze)". The associated wavepoint is the "wavepoint II
acces point", on the same page.
The wavepoint is optional, you can run the bards in 'ad-hoc' mode.
The wavepoint is a bridge to ethernet, and can also increase a bit
the range by relaying frames.

There seem to be a new product, the "WaveLAN IEEE Turbo PC Card (Bronze)",
I don't know what's the difference with the one I have. Maybe the same
driver will work ...
In support->software library, you can get a list of available drivers,
even for non-bill OS !
