I'm trying to use a wifi usb device in Kubuntu Karmic (9.10). Info of
the hardware & system:
* lsusb ID 083a:e501 Accton Technology Corp. ZD1211B
* dmesg: zd1211rw 2-2:1.0: zd1211 chip 083a:e501 v4810 high 00-1a-2a AL223
* uname -a: 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 17:01:44 UTC
2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Following your instructions, I do:
    modprobe zd1211rw
    echo "083a e501 FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF 0 0
and a new interface wlan1 appears. But:

* It doesn't associate to the AP:
  iwconfig essid MYESSID key s:MYASCIIKEY

* It's unable to scan:
  iwlist wlan1 scan
  wlan1     Interface doesn't support scanning : Device or resource busy

Apart from this, I'm using another PCI wifi card, wlan0, with ath5k
module and it goes ok.
I'll try to use ndiswrapper, but I prefer the "native" mode so, any
help will be appreciated; write me if you want me to do any test.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
