Re: zd1211 chipset support?

As an update on this issue: similar to Fedora, NM (0.5.1 from doesn't detect the zd1211 based usb stick on Ubuntu Dapper Drake. It fully works using {if|iw}config though.

Using a ppc and the latest zd1211 svn snapshot from

In FC4 (with latest updates): NM doesn't seem to recognize my zd1211 based usb adapter (wlan0). I can connect to wireless networks using iwconfig though, and iwlist wlan0 scanning shows the correct output.

In Ubuntu Dapper Drake: NM (version 0.4.1+cvs20050817 from the universe repository) shows the adapter as a wired adapter. So, if I set wireless parameters with iwconfig NM does the rest. I could build and install the latest 0.5.1 NM snapshot, but nm-applet wouldn't start (don't remember the exact message it complained with) so I couldn't test a recent version.

Do these issues and inconsistencies stem from problems with the zd1211 driver or NM?
