    Default Probs with TP-LINK TL-WN422G

    Hi guys, i'm running BT4 Pre Final (hd installed) on a Wind MSi U100 NetBook .
    I'm trying to let this wifi adaptor work so i searched all around the web (and the forum) and i used this guide

    hxxp://forum.aircrack-ng.org/index.php?topic=5334.0

    To install the zd1211rw patched driver .

    Anyhow, the pc does not seem to detect the adaptor, here's some data :

    1) This chipset will never work with zd1211rw because its not entirely the same. zd1211rw only supports 802.11b/g devices but your device is 802.11n capable.

    2) There are developments for this chipset here however it is still in its early stages and one would need the latest compat-wireless (most likely from git repository and wireless-testing.git) don't expect injection or monitor to work completely as yet.
