The “Utitlity” (a zip file) unpacks several files. The kernel crashes. I try to investigate the problem. The basic functions work but still not reliable in the long run.
WPA is working (SMC SMC2804WBRP-G) in Fedora 7+patches up to September, 2007 (2.6.22 kernel using NetworkManager) and also with Fedora Rawhide 2.6.23 kernel, using ndiswrapper 1.47 with a trivial patch for the change in kmem_cache_create. (OLD INFO: I got some errors parsing the inf-file after installing the driver with ndiswrapper -i /path/to/your/driverdir/sis162u.inf but it works. For me (running Debian Sarge, Kernel 2.6.8) WEP encryption works (WPA not tested). @Giri et al.: ‘Really great work!’ Thank you! :-)).
