No "out of the box" support in Dapper. zd1211rw kernel module in Edgy and newer Ubuntu releases. Tested in Dapper using no longer maintained community developed driver 'zd1211-driver-r85.tgz'. Even WPA2 (AES/CCMP) works! The adapter driver always stops working in Dapper (Linux 2.6.15-28) when sending large amounts of data over SMB. Reloading the driver fixes the issue but there's no permanent fix. Receiving data/Internet surfing appears to be OK.

No

Use NDISwrapper to install the XP drivers, because madwifi currently does not allow USB wifi adapters. Will not run on Pure "N" but works as "G"
