I have that model, and support is not good. Mine uses the rtl8180 chipset, 
which Realtek has closed-source drivers (but only for the 2.4.18 and 2.4.20 
kernel). I'm using 2.6.0, so my only choice was to use DriverLoader, the 
emulator for NDIS (Windows) drivers. It seems to work fine, but I'd really 
like to use native, open-source drivers. 
Let me know if you have any better luck.
