Sorry, but I need to push this old Thread... I have still problems to get the Wlan Stick installed...

The link above seems to be for pci/pcmcia cards only... but I need to install the Wlan USB Stick :rolleyes:

I tried many hours, but it still don't works :(

Is there any solution yet?


I even got an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG but the driver I found for this is causing a kernel panic :S


Can anyone help me please? :)
