Linux WiFi driver

This adapter works with the ipw2200 driver. Make sure you have installed the firmware! The ipw2200 documentation will tell you where to find these firmware files and where to install those.

Note: The ipw2200 driver up to version 1.0.6 (in combination with some newer kernels) had a problem getting DHCP leases (it turned out to be a bug in the broadcasting code). Version 1.0.7 seems to have fixed this.
