Subjectworking usb wifi card, that is still possible to buy
Hi!

Is there an USB wifi card that can still be bought in reasonable
ammount (like 1000 pieces) and is well supported by Linux?

So far I tried carl9170 (as seen by previous mails) and
rt2x00usb. carl9170 is not really usable; rt2x00usb works a bit
better, but also fails after some time:

phy0 -> rt2x00usb_vendor_request: Error - Vendor Request 0x07 failed
for offset.
phy0 -> rt2x00usb_vendor_request: Error - Vendor Request 0x06 failed
for offset.

for offset.

(is that failing firmware?)

Note that this is powerpc with OHCI/USB1.1 controller.
