Funny you should mention that. I was installing the latest Gutsy Gibbon
from this month's Linux Magazine while reading this and it's the FIRST
EVER distro to recognize my DWL-G122.
Actually, my previous Ubuntu did recognize it but didn't handle it
properly. Every time it would lose a connection, it wouldn't try to
reconnect again. Now it works correctly. I think this issue has
something to do with it being over a usb connection.
