    I couldn't seem to find any other threads for Debian Sarge so I'm just letting everyone know that it works great:

    Laptop: IBM ThinkPad 240X
    Card: FCC ID: NHPWLB1100 (no manufacturer)
    uname -a:
    Linux think.debian 2.4.27-2-686 #1 Mon May 16 17:03:22 JST 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
    rtl8180: Hardware frame sequence numbers disabled
    rtl8180: MAC controller is a RTL8180
    rtl8180: Reported EEPROM chip is a 93c56 (2Kbit)
    rtl8180: Card MAC address is 00:40:f4:94:11:45
    rtl8180: EEPROM version 102
    rtl8180: RfParam: 5
    rtl8180: Card reports RF frontend by Philips.
    rtl8180: OK! Philips SA2400 radio chipset is supported.
    rtl8180: Analog PHY found
    rtl8180: Energy threshold: b
    rtl8180: PAPE from CONFIG2: 6
    rtl8180: Antenna A is default antenna
    rtl8180: Antenna diversity is enabled
    rtl8180: Carrier sense 1
    rtl8180: 40-bit WEP is NOT supported in hardware
    rtl8180: 104-bit WEP is NOT supported in hardware
    rtl8180: IRQ 9
    rtl8180: Driver probe completed

    I used apt-get to get the kernel headers and the wireless tools (and kismet - working great). If anyone has any questions about getting their card working with a similar setup as mine I'd be glad to help. If anyone could help me with getting the drivers loaded on startup that would be greatly appreciated as well (I noticed the section in the INSTALL text needs doing?).

    Anyway, thanks Andrea

      It also works on Debian Sarge with kernel 2.6.8-2-686. I am currently using it with a D-Link DWL-520 in master mode.

      To the developer and all those who helped, Thank you very much.

      Jaison, To get the modules to load at boot time on Debian, I added the following lines to the /etc/modules file:
