I don't know about a distro, but I saw that WUSB11 v2.5 works with linux. I don't know about any other version.

You might try the most recent release of DamnSmall linux at http://www.damnsmalllinux.org Several users have reported being able to use USB wiresless adapters.

Question Who makes WUSB11 v2.5

Who makes WUSB11 v2.5? I am looking for a wireless network adapter and would prefer one that is both Linux and Windows compatible and will work with SUSE Linux 10.1

Kanotix and PCLinuxOS should both work well.

Are Kanotix and PCLinuxOS both wireless adapters? Are these USB? Do they support the "g" standard? Where do you get them?
