I found also an unofficial PCTel driver for kernel 2.6.0 which anyway
did not compile on 2.6.8. It's expected to work only on 2.6.0 and is

At this point I think I three options:
. Trying the smartlink driver from:
. Switching Ubuntu from kernel 2.6.8 to 2.4.x.

Thank you very much for support.
P.S. I Cc: this email to the ubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com mailing list
