I have the A2 revision of the DWL-G122 and I also have revision A1 of the 
DWL-122. I have been able to get both working using the latest version of 
ndiswrappers and the Windows XP drivers. I haven't run it for any length of 
time to see if there were any problems or not.

Which version of ndiswrappers were you using? How long was the connection 
running before it got dropped?

I am looking at adding WiFi support to a product. If the connection will be 
unreliable using the above device I will have to look in to other devices 
(unless it has something to do with the version of ndiswrapper being used).
