SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC] remove custom Michael MIC implementation
Hi,

Sorry, likely not. It is an early SDW-821 and has a MediaTek chipset for
which no driver is known:

For SDW-821 (SD size) and KS7010, you'd need a "S2Y-WLAN-11G-K" (but I
have never seen one yet):
https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Spectec_SDW-821_%28KeyStream%29

One can find an SDW-823 (microSD) "S2Y-MWLAN-11B-G" once in a while:

That should do.

Yes, have a look around and check if you like that task. I might have a
spare SDW-823 lying around if you are up to it. But check first, it is
not a trivial task. On the pro side, there are tons of interesting
things about WiFI and kernel development to learn on the way :)
