I bought two of these in England last weekend -
they were £10.40 each.
I think they have a Marvell ACX111 chip.
There is an ACX100 Project discussing ACX100&111 WiFi cards
with a Linux driver for these devices.
The Vivanco card is listed
where it is said that the driver works with this card.
I only tried briefly, but didn't get the driver working under Fedora-7.
The card works find under Windows XP,
with the driver on the accompanying CD.
