I am not sure about unofficially, but I think there was an article written on how to make wifi run using FREESCO. As I recall it was sort of a complicated procedure and it was written for a pre 0.2.7 FREESCO box without package support. Ledow also released a compiled version of the pcmcia source code for FREESCO which I think was where I started tinkering with it as well. But everything inside that source is dated as NOV 2001. But he could have easily made something work even before then because there is a directory dated Oct 1999 in the source.When did the drivers for the first Freesco Module for a WiFi card get distributed (officially, or unofficially, to another normal user )?
It has been quite a few years since I heard from Serguei . The last emails that I received indicated that he had lost all of his original source codes along with all of his equipment during the investigation over his employer smuggling arms and the US government confiscated everything he had computer wise. However to be clear on this incident, Serge was never charged with any crime to my knowledge. He didn't however give me any way to contact him and he also stated he was unable to continue with FREESCO. So anyone's guess is as good as mine as to where he is or if he is still around.Is Serge still around? Anyone?
To my knowledge, yes.TalkingToes, still in Seattle
