D-Link DWL-G122 (USB2 Dongle; would be helpful to specify the revision of the device the comments apply to : e.g., rev. A2 (see next card item) is Prism-based and quite different from some other revisions)

  • Chipset: Ralink RT2500USB
  • usbid: 2001:3C00
  • Driver: http://www.ralink.com.tw/supp-1.htm Native Linux-usb-driver as of 2005-08-19. RT2500 works OK for USB, tried in Fedora 4, worked like a charm. (Ivo van Doorn (aka IvD) should be working on the RT2500USB which is needed. http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Developers is the place to look)
  • Driver: 03/11/2004 on the CD (also latest found on dlink's ftp site) works with ndiswrapper-0.12. (No idea what revision the dongle is.)


Works with WEP. Linux 2.6.7 and 2.6.9 with ndiswrapper-0.11. Woks with WPA-PSK using wpasupplicant (see the WPA Wiki).

Driver: 07/15/2004 on the www.dlink.de website works with ndiswrapper-1.1. P/N EDWLG122..B1, FCC ID:KA2DWLG122B1

Driver: 04/01/2004 from the CD works with ndiswrapper-1.1 The older(?) driver from binbash.de made problems after insmodding ndiswrapper in the kernel (see below). I am running Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.11-r6. The driver works with WPA-PKS (TKIP)

Using kernel 2.6.10-1.770_14.rhfc3.at, can hang initial modprobe if the dongle is plugged in, unplug it to get past problem. This version of the dongle is rt2500 based and NOT prism based (USA dlink site has wrong drivers!)
