On a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 (6466-5DG) running gNewSense 2.3 (kernel
2.6.24-26) the D-Link DWL-G122 rev.C1 (07d1:3c03) wirelss USB adapter is
working fine to me.

[ NOTE: The T61 has onboard an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless card
which require a proprietary firmware (so does not work with gNS) and loads
the iwl3945 driver module (for the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) which
prevents loading other wireless driver! You may need to blacklist iwl3945
(in /ect/modprobe.d/blacklist) to be able to use other wireless adapters
such as the DWL.G122. ]
