Bad News. I had to set up two linux boxes for wireless and you are limited by what you can get. WUSB v 2.5 is supported in linux, but not v2.6 Linksys's WMP11 v1.0 is supported, but the new v2.7 that came out Sept 02.

A card in stores that is supported is the Netgear MA311. Its a PCI card though and i do not know if their USB card would work. When you look for a card, it needs to be based on the PRISM chip.

( THis all took about 5 trips to best buy and some internet research to learn this).

The version 2.6 is an atmel chipset. It is supported, for the most part, by the drivers here:

There is a really east way to get it to work . I also have the wusb11 ver 2.6 and i used the atmel driver with it . Get the driver go to the comand line and expand the file
the cd to "atmelwlandriver" do a make config and the answers are almost all no.Say yes to the build usb drivers and the first usb driver it list is the correct one so say yes to it then its no to everything else.I forgot to mention before all of this edit your modules.conf it need to have a line in it that alias usbcontroller uhci
then compile the driver
alias eth0 sis900
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller2 uhci
alias sound-slot-0 es1371
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
post-install usbvnetr /bin/

after you compile the driver modprobe it
"modprobe usbvnetr"
then reset your computer
i have never had any problems with it so if it doesnt work i apologize but email me and i will try to help you with it

What distro did you use when installing that? I've tried many times to get my WUSB11 2.6 running on RH9, but no luck. I haven't tried what you said yet, but I hope to soon.
