I have a question regarding the zd1211rw firmware. Is it supposed to be 
included within the latest stock kernel (I'm using latest kernel 
development version of Fedora Core 6 - soon to be release - 
2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-xen) or does it require user/distribution download and 
installation to make it functional. 
I'm assuming that the firmware is also a re-write and licensed under 
GPL; therefore, permitted to be included with the kernel. If NOT, then 
that should clearly answer my question that it could NOT be included.

By the way, I'm stress testing the latest zd1211rw included in the 
kernel (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6-xen) with firmware snapshot dated 10-19-06 
downloaded from http://www.deine-taler.de . So far so good, but very 
slow, maximum rate 1.1MB/sec (8.8Mbit/sec), where it should at least 
approach half max speed of 802.11g (54Mbit/sec).

Network setup:
3 clients (Airlink+AWLLL3025 - zd1211 chipset = ID: 0ace:1211)
    - connected to USB 2.0  at  802.11g
    - each running rsync to download 10GB+ of source tree from a 
wireless router rated at 802.11g
    - encryption: WPA-PSK
    - rate setup 54MBit/sec
    - distance from AP ~ 2 feet

Thanks to Daniel, Ulrich, et al for job well done!
