Just discovered DSL, I'm a bit of a Linux newbie, and when I tried it against my USR (PRISM 2 based) WiFi card, I was pleased to find it was recognised with out a problem. A friend of mine had had terrible trouble getting it to work under Mandrake.
However, there's a mismatch between IWCONFIG and the ORINOCO driver that throws up a warning that the driver is compiled as version 14 but IWCONFIG is at version 16 and it may mean that IWCONFIG will be broken!
I think it's telling the truth as it won't accept the ESSID keyword e.g.
complains about the SSID I use. Same command under Mandrake is fine.
