It does. Rather I should say the quicknet Linux driver supports it in
the 2.4 kernel. I don't have one, but I'm pretty positive it's a type II
5V card. I don't know about power requirements, but surely it's lower
power than these high-power wireless cards that are working in the
4511/4521. In any case, it's probably the only SLIC type device that is
really going to shine in the current generation of net45xx devices due
to its onboard dsp offloading the audio compression/decompression.
