I'm using feisty; the other day I had to set up a new PC for my
daughter. The mobo is an Asus a8n-sli se. In Canada at Staples store I
found a made in China usb dongle type wi-fi called Retail Plus for C$30
(compared with Linksys, Dlink etc that were in the 60-70 dollar range)
and I said to myself let me give it a try -if it doesn't work return it
for full refund. To my surprise it has a ZyDas 1211 chip set with full
support/drivers for Win 200/XP/XP64 on the CD enclosed. Under Feisty
with ndiswrapper it was up and running flawlessly in 5 minutes with full
WPA encription support. It saw the access point immediately and gave me
fully protected internet/e-mail access. I'm very satisfied how it
performs. Maybe this will help.
