I know, I know. I would love to, believe me -- ndiswrapper has had
some stability issues for me. But *USB* 802.11g wireless is extremely
difficult without it.
I can't wait for the Prism54-USB development to get somewhere (using
the madwifi stack, I should add), because then it means I'm off
ndiswrapper -- I have not one, but two P54USB devices I could use.
