No, these drivers will not support WPA currently, for a few reasons:

1) If you want a driver at least capabable of WPA, you need to use the
"softmac" branch of these drivers, ie:

http://acx100.erley.org/acxsm-20060215.tar.bz2

The straight "acx" drivers (without the "sm") are not capable of WPA.

2) They don't have the necessary enc_capa bits set in
acx_ioctl_get_range() to show that they do actually support WPA.  A
patch needs to get applied to add those, sort of like the patch for
ipw2x00 that I upstreamed a week ago or so:

Any driver that sanely supports Linux Wireless Extensions should work.
There isn't a canonical list; though there should be.  Unfortunately
drivers are often in flux (ie, madwifi) and change their support based
on the day of the week...
