We are in the process of cleaning up the GPL part of the driver (i.e.  
the cx3110x module) and will make it available ASAP. We'll release  
the 770 version corresponding to the latest ITOS2006 version first  
and then the N800 version. Due to license restrictions we cannot make  
all of it available (i.e. the umac module and the firmware) and I  
know it's been long overdue, but please bear with us.

Best regards,
