I've used two Edimax adapters without issue: they just work.

Are there usb wireless adapters known to work well with Linux?*There's a pretty comprehensive list over at the Ubuntu wiki, though you'd have to interpolate to Debian. Basically, if it worked on Ubuntu a year or two ago, my guess is it would work on Lenny now.

I've been using it; it works fine, although I haven't tested it heavily
or thoroughly.

Really? The last time I tried, the fact that the Edimax adaptors did
not work was the second most duped bug in Launchpad. I've got a
neighbor that is getting Ubuntu next week, if the issue truly is
resolved. Thanks for the heads up.

Hmmm, if what you say is true, I'd better double-check. I don't have
access to the machine in question right now, though, so I can't tell you
which kernel module it uses.

My receipt says the adapter I got was "Edimax EW-7318USg 54G 802.11
b/g".

The model was sold at http://lugradio.org/live/UK2008/ specifically as
"Just Works With Linux", which in my experience it did: that would have
been with Ubuntu/Hardy, though, not Debian.

More details later...

Dave.

According to google, it should work. Thanks!

The kernel appears to have loaded these modules:
rt2500usb,rt73usb,rt2x00usb,btusb

Those appear to be the ones associated with the Edimax USB adapter.
