Yep - the hardware and the driver need to support the feature. I'm
pretty sure that most modern adapters do, but the drivers may be a bit
behind. FWIW I just tried it on a Broadcomm, and it worked (after the
ARP cache timed out!).
I'd guess most wireless NICs are fairly new and therefore support it,
but you'll just try it and see - and try a different card if the first
one doesn't work. It's not something do all the time so I don't have a list.
