Just last night i set up a dlink dwl-122 usb 802.11b device under
linux.  The device will lock up under os X (10.2.8) after about an
hour -- the dlink drivers are pretty shoddy, it would appear -- but it
works great under linux :>

I'm using 2.6.3-benh2 and the latest linux-wlan-ng (from source, not
from debian packages).  Follow the linux-wlan-ng README and everything
should work.
