Remember a DWL-122 is nothing like a DWL-G122.  One is 802.11b and the
other 802.11g.

The DWL-122 supposedly works with linux drivers, the DWL-G122 B1 works
with linux drivers (rt2500) and the DWL-G122 A1/A2 does not work with
linux drivers (needs ndiswrappers or maybe doesn't work at all).

Mistyping model numbers can make things confusing or even incorrect. :)
