I'm having some trouble getting this to work. I have the 5.41 version of the firmware. Has any of you gotten that to work in Linux 2.6, or should I try to upgrade it? -- Bkhl 11:23, 7 February 2006 (CET)

I am also having some trouble getting this to work. I am using Windows 2k but plan on migrating to linux dual boot. I want to set it up in Windows first. The problem is with connecting the router/accesspoint (which is a Belkin WRT54G v8). It is encrypted with TKIP using a common passphrase and broadcasts on channel six. The Cisco driver that I downloaded from IBM/Lenovo does not seem to offer the option to connect using TKIP. I do not own the router and hardwire is not an option: I am living in a rented room. Any suggestions on getting WPA-TKIP encryption to work with this combination of hardware and software would be much appreciated. Before I was using a Belkin WPC54G ver. 2 PCMIA adapter which sets up with TKIP with its windows driver quiet easily. The problem is that it is that the linux driver is not easy at all to set up with this card. I also like having all the wireless apparatus contained within the computer: no antenna stubb to break off. Greg Garrison
