By Linux distribution:
Downloaded mac8011 9.0.2, and iwl-0.1.4 and recompiled kernel and modules following the instructions from intellinuxwireless.org. Works and tested with kwallet (for storing wpa key) and an accesspoint using wpa personal.
It is supported by the iwl4965 driver, part of the iwlwifi project (www.intellinuxwireless.com). It might be merged in 2.6.23.
Needs a binary microcode, possibly non-free.

Btw turning it off with hardware button, I need to unload/reload its module to make it works again.
Some time drivers freeze the kernel
lights on case only works with the windows driver though
having some problems with dhcp requests :(
need to compile and install Intel driver manually.
Originally I manually downloaded and modified the intel iwlwifi drivers (that was with opensuse 10.2) but since I upgraded to opensuse 10.3 it has been working out of the box as far as I can remember.
IEEE 802.11n (300Mbit theroterical max. rate) was not tested.
it needs iwlwifi and iwl4965-ucode packages
You need to compile iwlwifi from http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/

dhcp doesn’t work correctly if you are using more than one network
Works perfectly at boot but does not work perfectly while resuming from suspend.
the radio reception is better as it is in Windows XP
As it’s common on Debian system, the firmware “firmware-iwlwifi” is not installed by default.
Plus, there is a bug in the automatically installed package “acpi-support” that prevent the wifi to be used.uninstalling acpi-support solve this problem.For more info take a look at :http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=482349
