The list of wireless chipsets is easy to do.
It's mapping the chips to the damn products that is a pita.
For example, the netgear WG511 (I think it is). V1 is a minipci in pci
adapter based atheros. V2 is a soldered on ACX111.
And some manufacturers aren't even that nice.
Belkin F5D7010 802.11g PC card v.2000 is supported by OS-X, v.3000 isn't
(it went from broadcom to ralink so I guess the 3000 is supported by
linux). But these numbers are on some little sticker under the box.
