I finally got ndiswrapper going on the Squeeze, at bootup the
rtl8187 driver fires up my little usb Netgear WG111v3, which
has a realtek rtl8187b chipset, but it does not work correctly.
The original wg111v3 driver doesn't work well either, rate is
about 1M and it's a 11g 54M adapter. I found an updated driver
named net8187b from Realtek, it does not work correctly in WinXP
but it is humming right along on debian, after adding it's VID string
to the .inf file USB\VID_0846&PID_4260&REV_0200
I have net8187b.inf net8187b.cat and rtl8187B.sys and ndiswrapper
builds for both 2.6.32-5-486 and 2.6.32-5-686 these devices are in
several laptops, and cheap plug in usb. It is real diappointing
there are no linux drivers anywhere, and from what I have read the
whole ndiswrapper idea may be broken soon, but I am new and I had
some fun figuring out how to get it working, thanks for the Squeeze!
