I added patch 13 and 14 to
which allows the zd1211 vendor driver to build against recent kernel - in my 
case, .

I use it mainly for the AP mode, on an old machine that has just been 
resurrected after over a year, so the last it worked was on 2.6.31.x . There 
are a couple of old and new quirks: a dozen of 'We are trapped in 
zd_SigProcess, Going to release all,id=3,block=1' is new to 2.6.35.x, but the 
driver has always needed if down/up and or iwlist scan before a client station 
can connect, and that's still the case; and under extended use (a few days, 
and/or a few GB traffic) it can still bring the AP machine down.

I see some great person has just had a whole bunch of patches committed to 
wireless-testing in the last few months for enabling AP mode for the in-kernel 
zd1211rw driver... so 2.6.39(?) or thereabout it would be generally 
available...so the use of the vendor driver for AP mode would soon not be 
needed any more. I'd probably give the compat-wireless a try soon enough.
