Sorry - please ignore the following - wrong model.

I believe this is supported by the open source acx100 driver:

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/

This driver also made it into the 2.6.13 kernel with patch mm3. You still have to install some firmware tho'.

I have the PCI version of this unit. The driver loads up OK with 2.6.13-mm3 but I cannot get it to associate with the AP. As mentioned in other posts, there may be some issues with the driver due to lack of manufacturer support. On the other hand it seem lots of people have success with this.

1) download ndiswrapper..
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/
(it installs Windows drivers as modules)
2) read INSTALL and do the VERY SIMPLE steps in there
3) apt-get install kwifimanager..(comes with KDE by default)
________________
4) To operate every time the computer restart ..
Code:
vim /etc/modules
and add the a line
Code:
ndiswrapper

Which driver did you use? I've tried the same thing with a few different
Netgear released drivers, but the kernel panics when probing ndiswrapper :/
