The problem might not be the specific wireless networking adapter; it could be an issue with USB 1. And after a half-dozen unsuccessful attempts, I swore off of ndiswrapper for good. I plugged it into the Toshiba laptop and booted into Ubuntu 8. I remember somebody either e-mailing me or leaving a comment on one of my posts or was it a forum thread? But I could never make it work.

Then when I airlknk101 did connect had to reboot I had the typical screen-freezes-and-ctrl-alt-backspace-AND-ctrl-alt-delete-have-no-effect-so-I-have-to-do-a-hard-reset.

The problem might not be the specific wireless networking adapter; it could be an issue with USB 1. The number of hardware makers who provide an open-source driver is even fewer.
Sure there were lengthy forum threads about how to use ndiswrapper to make a Windows driver for the AWLL work in Linux. I plugged it into the Toshiba laptop and booted into Ubuntu 8.
