the driver i am using came with the rndiswrapper (thats the only way i
know how to explain, if you want more info, visit : www.jooz.net/rndis
). the device is a linksys wusb54gsc.
this driver is kinda old, it was created around late 2006. so, since i
dont know C++ enough to recreate the driver, i guess im stuck with the
old kernel. ofcoarse i could just do what you did, use one kernel for
internet, and one for work.
______i also remember trying to compile it on ubuntu 6.06 with the same
kernel and it gave me the same problem.______
