    Question Linux and a wireless USB stick ... help!

    Ubuntu 7.04
    BT Voyager 1055 Wireless USB

    I believe it's a Broadcom bcm43xx chipset of some sort, possibly bcm43ug, though what information I found through googling didn't seem to help much. Most promising site seemed to be http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/ but I got the feeling USB wasn't yet supported

    If anyone has had any luck using wireless USB in linux, particularly BT voyager or broadcom 43xx chipsets that'd be a good start

    my belkin F5D7050 works (out of the box, with no configging at all!!!), my D-link DWL-G132 does not at all (although it apparently worked using ndiswrapper with ubuntu 6.06, this has been boned in 7.04)

    ah yes, I should have said - I tried some NDISWrapper program with the BT 1055 drivers and although the wrapper gui says that the driver: "driver" is already installed, I cannot see anywhere to configure it.

    I should really start learning to hash up my own drivers. Maybe in a few months if I'm feeling really enthusiastic...or possibly then I will simply check what is supported before buying ... argh
