I am a novice to Linux. I am very excited of Suse Linux 9.1 Personal, because I really dislike Window. As most of the beginners, I have failed trying to set up my newly bought Airlink USB 2.0 802.11g model #AWLL3025. It keeps giving me a error stated that it doesn't support USB networking. I don't understand because usb isn't it external? When I was setting up for the dial up, I researched and it seems like it is better to have an external modem.
Anyone has any suggestion.

I heard about www.linuxant.com, any other suggestion.

thanks

External modems are good because they connect to the serial port ... and are definately not WinModems.

USB on Linux is not as easy to setup (usually) as an internal network card.

That specific device (AWLL3025) is brand new, there are only a couple hits on Google and none of them concern Linux.

You can try DriverLoader from Linuxant and see if it works (Free Trial).

There is a free version of NdisWrapper that uses a similar technology (ie, uses windows network drivers for linux). Here is the site ... here is an FAQ.
