The Cnet you gave as a link i haven't tried. I recently got a DLink

mentionning that not written on the site,the MA111 was a v2, making it
incompatible with Linux.
I have to say i am getting quite upset with general wireless chipset
support and the fact that most vendors will not even care warning
people when they decide to change chipsets without telling anyone ...
So to conclude, i have no satisfactory wireless under Linux/*BSD on my
12" Powerbook ...
