> The RTL8187SE is a miniPCI version of the Realtek 8187 wireless chipset. Until recently, it had no linux driver. A user on the msiwind.net forums emailed realtek about this, and they received a driver that was not listed on their site. The driver didn't compile for the 2.6.24 kernel included in ubuntu hardy, but after I made some modifications, it compiles and is reported to work.
