TL-WN550G/TL-WN551G

Chipset:AR5212 (802.11b/g)
URL:http://www.tp-link.com/products/product_des.asp?id=41
Interface:PCI
Antenna Connector:none (TL-WN550G only); detachable reverse SMA connector antenna (TL-WN551G only) -- the difference between the TL-WN550G and the TL-WN551G is whether the antenna is fixed or detachable
Device Information:PCI ID: 168c:001a (rev 01)
Notes: Working fine with MadWiFi driver under debian.wpa_supplicant works also fine with WPA AES. Keep in mind to use the "-d wext" in wpa_supplicant.conf instead of madwifi, because this has been changed. Wext is the linux wireless extension.
Notes: Working fine with MadWiFi driver 0.9.2 under Slackware. Running a AP using hostapd 0.5.4 (WPA-PSK) without any problems.
Notes: Working fine with MadWiFi driver 0.9.3 under Fedora Core 5 kernel 2.6.20-1.2319.fc5. Tested in mode managed, adhoc and monitor. Also tested drivers patched for injection succesfully
Notes: Working fine with MadWiFi SVN 20080109 under Ubuntu server 7.10. Running in master mode without any problems.
