USB Wi-Fi Drivers

For Ralink RT5572 and related Wi-Fi Chips

MCCI has implemented USB drivers for USB Wi-Fi dongles based on MediaTek/Ralink RT5572 and similar chipsets to make the experience of adding Wi-Fi Connectivity to an embedded system as off the shelf as possible. For supported operating systems, our low-level drivers come with a port of the MIT-licensed WPA supplicant, and a simple DHCP server to support walk-up iPhone, iPad, Android, and PC client access.
