Suse 10.1 won't recognise Linksys wusb54gv4

I've been happily using Suse 10.0 with a Linksys wusb54Gv4 wifi adapter - Suse recognised it and installation was easy. I thought I would give Suse 10.1 a try but find that the adapter is no longer supported. When I use ndiswrapper to install the driver from the Windows disc, the process fails right at the end (modprobe stage) and tells me that I need a 64 bit driver (I have an AMD64 cpu). If the driver works in windows and in Suse 10.0, how come it won't work with ndiswrapper/10.1? Does anyone know if the adapter will be supported in Suse 10.2?

it is supported Now as long as you use the 64 bit driver. You should be able to find one on google.
