It may detect it but it certainly wont be able to set it up without something like ndiswrapper or 3rd party drivers.

There are linux drivers available for the B1 & C1 hardware versions of DWL-G122 at the D-Link support web site tsd.dlink.com.tw/Download.asp and selecting the product code in the drop lists.

I wonder if anyone out there has experience with these drivers?

If you're having any problems with using the ndiswrapper, you should check out www.linuxant.com. This site will get you started quickly. It'll cost you about $20 but the license is forever. Plus you can get a free 30 day trial so you can see if it'll work for you before you actually spend any money. This was a good alternative for me as ndiswrapper gave me a headache.

Thanks Rowancompsciguy, I was having lots of trouble too. I think I will go the route you suggested. It's worth 20$ for the loss of the headache.
