I believe that it is indeed a zd1211rw based chipset. i don't have a
dump of it, though..
my info is from Joshua Wright, who modified the zd1211rw drivers for
the latest edition of the SANS617 Backtrack distro. Here are his
1. Modified zd1211rw driver to recognize the Airpcap Classic and
Airpcap TX USB VID/PID
values; modified ieee80211.ko driver to check for monitor-mode and
you'll have to recompile the kernel to get the AirPCap to work, and
even then I couldn't get injection operating correctly (although Josh
did in his Backtrack Distro).
