<br>I would have to disagree on the &quot;well supported&quot; part of ththe above comment.&nbsp; In my experience it depends on what you are doing.&nbsp; I have found trying to use madwifi along with wpa_supplicant and trying to do WEP or LEAP just does not work, at least with DHCP.&nbsp; I have tested and tried multiple kernel, madwifi and wpa_supplicant versions and with all the same result.&nbsp; My test bed is T41 and my home Linksys WRT54G(which has run both native Linksys and DD-WRT software) and IBM&#39;s own internal network.
<br><br>At this point I would still have to unfortunately recommend ndiswrapper(in the process of trying to go back to it, had it working a while back, upgraded kernels, it broke then all of the madwifi).<br></div><br>Good luck,
