Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle - revisited
Authored by: pitulgi on May 19, '06 09:07:06AM

I guess the problem doesn't come from the dongle itself, but rather from a conflict with certain configurations. I own an iBook G3 900 and this DWL-G122 rev B1 dongle.

Funny enough, the driver worked perfectly for me until I had to connect to a WPA-secured network. I had a delay each time I connected to a server or tried to access a webpage, and that was a major PITA while surfing the web, so I configured my Wifi station (provided by my ISP, not an Apple Base Station) to WEP instead, even if it's said to be less secure.

So far, it works fine, the "Profiles" manager in has no problem at all (I have 3 different networks I connect to regularly), but I did experience some kernel crashes when plugging/unplugging the dongle, or back from sleep.

If only RALink would release a software that's not as out of place as this WirelessUtility, though... I'd really like a menu bar like the Airport one. But my laptop is nearly 3 years old and still works like a charm, so I guess I can't complain :)
