    Can you try to describe your network infrastructue as closely as possible instead? I don't think you'll be able to accomplish anything by running the CD on a Linux computer.

    Those USB things always pose problems, and especially since it's a Microsoft thing, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high. I wouldn't be surprised if they had added some proprietary protocol extensions just in order for it not to work on Linux.
    However, I did a search for it on google, and it seems that it's based on the Intersil Prism2.5 chipset. In that case, there is still hope. Check out http://www.linux-wlan.org/, download and install their driver. If you still can't get it to work, join their mailing list and see if they know anything about it.
