    228230||Notes:||Works with madwifi 0.9.3 under Ubuntu Edgy on Samsung R20 laptop. Didn't try madwifi driver provided by Ubuntu (restricted-modules). To get DHCP working  might be necessary to bring down other network interfaces (e.g. the LAN interface with following command for Ubuntu: "sudo ifdown eth0"). Ad-hoc Mode doesn't work for me at all.|| 
    229231||Notes:||I can confirm that this works out of the box in Ubuntu 8.04, however to let it connect via DHCP you need to switch of your ethernet card by running this command in your terminal, "sudo ifconfig eth0 down". Other than that, it works great.||
