  Netgear MA101b no longer authenticates since at76_usb dropped from .32

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Several atmel-based USB wireless adapters do not work with at76c50x
  kernel driver, now the only one since at76_usb was removed from
  /staging in .32.  Previous workaround was to blacklist at76c50x so the
  system would fall back to at76_usb, which works.  It no longer seems
  possible to compile at76_usb from source
  (http://at76c503a.berlios.de/) against .32 or .33

  There only way to can get wireless working in Lucid is to use the
  2.6.31-rt and blacklist at76c50x as before.  The errors I see when
  using at76c50x with the Netgear MA101b are:

  [  924.409976] wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:x:x:x:x:x by local choice (reason=3)
  [  924.416951] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:x:x:x:x:x (try 1)
  [  924.611261] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:x:x:x:x:x (try 2)
  [  924.811260] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:x:x:x:x:x (try 3)
  [  925.021261] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:x:x:x:x:x timed out

  With the same firmware, AP, WEP key, the a76_usb module (in 2.6.31)
  works fine.  Just a heads up that Lucid will not support a whole host
  of Atmel USB adapters at this point.  See also:
