   The ExpressNet support responded to my questions. It has a Realtek chip
set, and the power is 23dbm. The product description page on their web site
says that it runs with the linux 2.6 kernels, so I assume it's not as
distribution-sensitive as is Keith's. My notebook runs Slackware, not
Gentoo, Ubuntu, or openSuSE so we'll soon add a fourth distribution to the
Realtek USB WiFi devices.
