You were right! It seems to be working pretty well with zd1211b. I am sending
this email through a connection using the device, wpa_supplicant and WPA2. It
does seem to be limited to 11 Mbit/s though - I will see if I can figure this
I will use this as my main connection for a while to see how stable it is but
so far it looks good. The output from dmesg also looks better now,
zd1211rw 1-6:1.0: firmware version 4725
zd1211rw 1-6:1.0: zd1211b chip 0586:3410 v4810 high 00-13-49 AL2230_RF pa0
zd1211rw 1-6:1.0: eth1
Thanks for your help (I should have probably just tried the b type driver).
Let me know if there is any more I can do to help get this device supported
by the driver.
