Success using WEP with DWL-G122 on Debian and Ubuntu
With no encryption (WEP disabled on Dlink DI-524 wireless router) I was able to use the WiFi Adapter Dlink DWL-G122 running Debian 3.1 by installing ndiswrapper and wireless-tools and using 'ndiswrapper -i' to install the driver supplied with the Adapter, PRISMA02.inf. The DWL-G122 is H/W Ver. A2. However with WEP encryption enabled on the wireless router, I was no longer able to set the essid using iwconfig.
The default configuration for 'authentication' is 'open system'. After I changed the 'authentication' to 'shared key' I was able to specify a WEP encryption key and connect using DWL-G122 adapter with the following:
iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxxx key xxxxxxxxxx
I also was able to use the DWL-G122 using a similar procedure when running Ubuntu 6.06.
