The DWL-122 does just 802.11b AFAIK.

I've been looking for ways to get WLAN working under Linux on my iBook
G4, since Airport Extreme isn't supported an USB stick seems to be the
best solution. But I haven't found much information on how well USB WLAN
sticks work with Linux, especially with 2.6 kernels. It seems that
linux-wlan-ng provides some drivers, but I'm not sure that it will work
with 2.6, since all HOWTOs dealing with USB WLAN refer only to 2.4
kernels. Is there someone who uses an USW WLAN stick with 2.6?
