oysteivi at hex:~$ lsusb | grep Realtek
Bus 002 Device 010: ID 0bda:8172 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 

The test deb works for for associating to my 3Com 11n AP
(3CRWER300-73-ME), but fails to associate properly with my Linksys
WRT54GL 11g AP.

The binary from svn.debian.org (which can also be found at
http://people.debian.org/~benh/rtl-wlan/ ) works for me with both access
points, so it appears that getting a redistributable license also for
the proper SU firmware would be the superior solution.
