please make sure you are using the latest release of DriverLoader (2.45) 
since we did fix an important crash issue with 2.6.20 or later kernels, 
which is easy to trigger with Ubuntu 8.10 kernels. The latest version of 
DriverLoader can be downloaded at:


If it still doesn't work with DriverLoader 2.45, while the wireless 
device is attached to the machine and the Windows driver is installed, 
please send to support at linuxant.com the output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the 
following in a shell:

sudo dldrconfig --dumpdiag

If that command completely freezes your machine, please try this one 

sudo dldrconfig --dumpdiag --noprobe

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
