my current situation situation is that I need to be able to get WLAN access by 
monday since I will go on a business trip then.  So there is practically no 
time anymore to buy any WLAN hardware different from what I have.  What I 
have is a Fiberline WL-430U USB dongle.  This is listed as a supported device 
on http://zd1211.ath.cx/ so I bought it and didn't search for another device.  
But now that I have received it I have to discover that it is obviously *not* 
supported by the zd1211 module.

I use Debian etch (testing).  I installed the zd1211-source_0.0.0.svnr67-2 and 
zd1211-firmware_2.4.0.0-1 packages and compiled the module via 
module-assistent, not using a complete kernel source tree but just the kernel 
headers as provided by the appropriate kernel-headers package.  My kernel is 
2.6.15, by the way.  I plugged in the dongle and entered modprobe -v zd1211 
but got only the following output:

        insmod /lib/modules/2.6.15-1-486/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/zd1211.ko

Nothing else happened.  When I tried ifconfig wlan0 up, I got the following 

        wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

/proc/bus/usb contain these lines:

        P: Vendor=1582 ProdID=6003 Rev=48.10
        S: Manufacturer=ZyDAS
        S: Product=USB2.0 WLAN

The vendor and product IDs are totally different from what is shown on 
http://zd1211.ath.cx/!  How can this happen?

And most important question: How can I get this dongle to work *withing a few 
days*?  Shall I modify the source and add my vendor and product IDs as 
supported IDs somewhere?  What else can I do?  Please help!!!
