DWL-G122 (C1) perhaps once again


Hello!

I am a student and naturally a noob with a dual boot of WindowsXP and SUSE10.0. Some days ago I bought a DWL-G122 to share internet with others without knowing anything about driver complications. It is working smoothly under Windows but SUSE isn't happy with it.

Before writing this mail I did my "best" research for days to figure it out myself. But I failed miserably and miserable I am. It's also tiresome to switch from SUSE to Windows to get some online info and try it in Linux. Would love to reach out some kind hearts so that I can start working on some urgent projects.

Here is a short description of what I did so far - installed ndiswrapper but nothing happened (perhaps I didn't configure the network card right, perhaps it still isn't configured right). Then I installed more drivers - rt2500 and rt73. After rt3, the device shows in my hardware info but it isn't coming up.

I am posting some command line info as you always ask for it. Please have a look. And as always, my heartfelt thanks in advance.
