Thanks for the reply. It turns out that both the computer
(Dell XPS T800r) and the Netgear MA111 are USB 1.1 devices.
This is a Linux/Ndiswrapper problem. I haven't emphasized
this, but it's a dual-boot box and the MA111 works fine with
James's remarks are all too familiar. I love Linux for its
stability and network capabilities, but all too often I spend
hours tinkering trying to get stuff to work, often with flaky
results; stuff which works trivially under Windows. Of course I
wouldn't be running Linux if I didn't like to tinker, but
sometimes it gets old.
