I would be interested in any usb 802.11 with wpa support.. anyone know of any?


I do not. I actually meant to say that WEP seems broken for me w/ wlan-ng. WPA seems like one step farther out that WEP, so I doubt that there's going to be much help on that. On the other hand, have yo gotten WEP working properly? I've tried it, but to no avail (making/editing /etc/conf.d/<my.wlan>.conf). If you have WEP working, do you mind posting your /etc/wlan.conf and what version of linux-wlan-ng you're using?

@qleak

Yes the 12" PB hasn't got a PC Card slot, nor has the mac mini, so I think thats why people still want the usb stick that works with linux.

They are hard to find, especially with WPA support (if at all)

What kernel are you using? Since about 2.6.11, sleep has been working %100 for me on an iBook G4 1.2GHz 12". I use a USB keyboard and mouse and the only minor problem is that they stop working if ehci_hcd is loaded. simply rmmod it and they come right back. Once in a while, the screen does not come on, but just closing the case and opening it again makes the screen wake. Sleep was a disaster (ooops, crash,crash, oops...) on earlier kernels for me.


Ok, I compiled and installed 2.6.12-gentoo-r4 : I can now let the USB dongle plugged in when going to sleep, it doesn't crash the system anymore. But I still have to unplug/plug after wake up to get the network back.

WPA works for me using ural-linux driver (for chipset RT2500USB) :

No problem when sleep/resume !

But WEP deesn't work (a bug ?).

I have a iBook G4 1.2Ghz 12", debian unstable and kernel 2.6.12, DWL-G122.

This is a great thread. So far I've learned there are basically two popular devices
Also the Netgear MA111 has two available versions: 1 and 2. 1 works, 2 doesn't. Anyone know if the situation is similar for the D-Link?

I'm afraid I don't know, but why get a usb adapter now when the native broadcom driver is out?

Good point. The reason is that I'm looking for a device I can use both in my Linux system and my Mac OS X system. KisMAC at this point only has Prism2 support for USB devices.

I was assuming that you had a laptop, in which case you'd already have the Airport 1 or 2 in it, and these are already supported under OS X and Linux. I would guess that there's an Airport option for desktops, too, right? If the Airport (=broadcom) is the only thing supported under OS X (is it?), it's either that or the USB thingy.

Ok, well I don't totally follow, but I can tell you my setup. The laptop is OS X, the desktop is Gentoo. I'd like to be able to put the adapter in passive mode on OS X, which is not supported with Airport Extreme (what I think you call Airport 2). It's possible that support is coming, with the release of the 43xx driver, but I'm not going to hold my breath, because there hasn't been any noticeable KisMAC development since May. For the desktop, I don't need passive mode, I just want the option of using it on a wireless network.

I tried to get a Netgear wg111v2 working, without success. It should be supported by prism54 softmac.
I am looking for a D-Link DWL-G122 now, which should be supported by ural-linux. Aiport works but isn't capable of wpa. The USB device on a wire I can put somewhere else for better reception. And moreover I could need a second interface for kismet.

That's great news... Maybe I will try to get wpa working this weekend.

Is your wpa_supplicant patched?

Which versions are you using of softmac?

please forgive me for getting grotesquely off-topic.
