Greetings Etc,

I have a group of HP Smart Zero Client t410 which I need to connect to a 2008 RDS server via wireless network.

HP was not very helpful, saying only that usb wireless supported by Linux should work. I have tried two different adapters so far, an Asus n53 and a Sabent (using a realtek chipset). The Asus is supposedly supported by kernel version 2.6.31+. Kernel log on the client shows the device being attached but I don't see any attempt to load a driver.

Obviously, I could just use a "universal" wireless-to-Ethernet adapter or an AP in bridge mode, but that seems clunky (also more expensive).

So then, my questions are:

Does anyone know of a wireless usb adapter which will work for stock HP Zero OS
How do I add a driver to the client.

Kernel version says 2.6.37-atlas.
