the chip in Nokia's 770 and 800 is a Conexant CX3110x.
Although it has a closed firmware, I found this announcement
with no replies on the maemo mailing list. Maybe someone who is faster
in than than me should try to get the driver working on his nokia770.
(The packages mentioned in the announcement do not work on current
maemo, because of the older EABI)
Maybe it would be a good idea to get in contact with the Prism54 softmac
team and maybe ship a nokia device to them.
