What distro will work with Sitecom 300N USB adapter?

Hi, I tried to work with a WL-302 Sitecom USB adapter in Ubuntu and Puppy but no luck so far. Do you know if there is any distro that will work with it? (hate to go back to Windows)

Reasonable question, but probably the wrong one.

What you want to know is: Is there a native driver for this card in the Linux kernel?
The answer to that depends on what chip is in that card. E.g. I have a D-link wireless adapter that uses the ACX111 chip.

If there isn't a driver you can probably use the Windows drivers in Linux by using the ndiswrapper software around it.

Mons, you are right but the system doesn't simply see the USB adapter so I may have an even bigger problem. The sitecom site does not display any chipset info.
I checked the Linux-wireless site for Sitecom USB adapters and found only 54Mb devices with driver ZD121RW (already included in kernel 2.6.18) so this driver is no good for me.
So I'll follow your lead and try try the ndiswrapper software.
Thanks for the reply.
