    WG111v2 now works out of the box

    OMG!
    Just tried Ubuntu 9.04 live CD - right-clicked on wireless icon > connect to hidden network > entered SSID > selected WPA personal > entered password and bingo - immediate connection. Great progress - well done Ubuntu!

    Using USB wireless dongle - Netgear WG111v2 (chipset 0846:6a00).
    Previous versions have required NDISWRAPPER drivers leading to only WEP encryption.

    You using 32 or 64 bit version?

    If it works in both then it is indeed very great progress.

    I'm using 32 bit. I have now done the full installation and ubuntu flawlessly automatically connects at every startup.

    I'm using 64 bit Jaunty and the WG111v2 also seems to work out of the box. It took me hours to figure out I just had to click the top right and select my typical network.

    Hopefully it won't stop working at some point, which I believe some others have experienced.

    Unfortunately I spoke too soon. The connection does work but is unreliable and slower than in Windows.
