I have two D-Link DWL-G122 (rev B1 and C1) sticks. Technically, they work, but
their transmission quality is not very high and they need a high wireless
signal quality (maybe I cannot enable their full TX power).

Is there an USB Wireless Adapter out there which has good open source drives
and Debian support and in addition is sensitive enough to work even with lower
quality wireless networks (I would be happy if it could compete with my Nokia
N900 cellphone).

Many thanks,

You may be expecting too much of this (discontinued) device:  your cellphone
can transmit and receive for miles; this 802.11 device can only be expected to
work for 30 feet or so.  Anything over that is gravy.

What is a "lower quality wireless network" and why are you trying to use one?
Can it not be upgraded?  Shouldn't it be?
