It would be nice if somebody took the time to just write a small email
on the subject why the device is not working and what is needed to get
it working and what the developers are doing to get all the needed
resources... I feel kind of offended by the fact that I get zero
response on the debian bug reports and almost no constructive info on
the mailinglist so far...

It is very hard to find and buy stable Linux supported wireless usb
dongles without going trough the try and error method every time. I can
select devices on used chipset and sometimes pids but even then some
devices do not work.. it just races a lot of unanswered questions.

Best regards and awaiting response,

Jelle de Jong
