    i don't know which chipset wl130b uses (marvell probably ??)

    but for wl138g there are no signs of existing linux driver from asus nor from Marvell

    maybe you should use that linuxant thingy or similair

    Also, ndiswrapper could be probably used.

    I can confirm that the Asus WL138g uses a Marvell Libertas chipset, and also that it does work with ndiswrapper.

    only point to note is that you have to use old driver versions (ones on CD-rom) and then the Windows 2000 drivers. From these drivers you might have to rename the .sys file.

    I'm posting this on a debian 3.1 box (with kernel 2.6.12.3) and using a WL138G as network interface.

    If you are using the latest ndiswrapper, you can use the newest XP-version (2.3.0.19 seems to be the newest).

    I am using the XP-Driver 2.3.0.19 with ndiswrapper 1.13 and it works like a charm. I tried several different versions before with ndiswrapper 1.1 and it didn't work.

    Luc Saillard works on a native Linux driver, though.

    I have an ASUS A8V-E Deluxe (Motherboard) which also uses the Marvell Libertas chipset.
