So ... here is an update:

1st - Nacho's driver does not work at all for my 10.04 64bit box ... it
is hit and miss on the compile, but  I lose my wlan0 interface, it's
jsut gone !!

assunto	Re: 8187b for linux 64bits
Dear Sir/Madam
Thanks for your e-mail.
The RTL8187B Linux driver just only support 32bit os.
Best Regards


The GREAT NEWS is that there is a Brasilian developer in the kernel-
wireless list that seems to have fixed the problem:

I am actually using the 8187b card with a Ubuntu 10.04 box 64 bit about
30 meters from the router, and conection is as good it seems as with
Win7 ...

Will test more of this connection so it can be patched in the kernel,
but it will take a HUGE TIME to come down to a kernel compiled for
Ubuntu, my advice is getting the patch, apllying it to the source of the
driver and recompiling the driver against your running kernel ...

Will ask him if I can post it here, as soon as he responds will post it
and maybe some 2.6.32-25 kernel packages with it already installed
