D-Link DWL-G122 USB adapter and LAN

Well, recently, my windows has been pissing me off. So I've decided to go with Linux. I have installed it, but it doesn't find any networks.

I use the D-Link DWL-G122 USB adapter but how to find out if it works? THen, How to connect to the network?

And if the driver doesn't work, what to do?

You'll need to check the rev number on the dongle and then figure what chipset is actually in the thing. Then you can figure out what driver you'll need to install and compile into the kernel.

Driver of last resort: ndiswrapper - it uses Windows drivers - when it works.
