Got a Netgear wg111v2, Realtek 8187 chipset. Works in Feisty out of the box.

Now I had to upgrade the kernel, backported the gutsy kernel to feisty, works 
alright, now today found to my surprise that the gutsy kernel src does *NOT* 
have the backported 8187 module feisty has. (Reasons for this are beyond me.)

So I grabbed the aircrack-ng driver pack and installed their 8187 module, 
which works so far, but I can't access WPA, only WEP. knetworkmanger doesn't 
even offer WPA.

the wireless tools complained about version, so I backported those from gutsy, 
too, along with iwlib29. Still no go. Scans APs alright but I can't go WPA.
