wlan usb device driver isnt working

rite now im using knoppix, cool distro indeed. the onli prob is that i cant get into the net using knoppix wif my TEW-229 UB (version 2.0 ) wlan usb adapter. And unfortunately too, the manufacture doesnt provide linux os driver for it... sigh

ive tried installing the windows Me version of the driver using ndiswrapper, but it stated there the prog doesnt work wif the driver * cries * . and i really wanna use linux! Guys please help

anyone here could 'invent' a linux based driver from the win driver? and theres a driver ( all windows ) at their vendor site. please cud anyone try it??

ndiswrapper usually works best with Windows 2000 or XP drivers.

The creation of a new driver for something is non-trivial. If you're looking for that, the very least someone would need is the same hardware, in order to test and debug it.

Your best bet for a native linux driver is to find another device with the same chipset.
