I use the rtl8187b with ndiswrapper with excellent performance.  But...  I have the latest ndiswrapper installed.  I found the one included with VL5.9 Standard had a problem with keeping connected.  Maybe the latest (ndiswrapper) will work for you?

Ditto but I didn't update ndiswrapper I just used my other wireless adapter.

the problem remains no improvement at all after updating to the latest version ndiswarpper(compiling from source).i can't access to vector website at all althought i  can ping its name...
i can only  a very few site (which i visited with ethernet LAN in the office, perhaps vector has a caches to remember,......)that's strange....
any user here actually surf the net at flawlessly speed with RTL8187 usb wireless card?from my reading relevant topics it seems  all claims it works well under vector 5.9.....
any pravtical solution?

You may want to try the serialmonkey drivers:

non that doesn't work at all, serial monkey doesn't support realtek rtl wireless chips at all..
while rtl 8187 usb did work well  with ndswrapper under mandriva 2008 spring.

I may be reaching.  But did you have the kernel sources installed, and did the ndiswrapper kernel module get built when you compiled ndiswrapper?  Also apparently the new ndiswrapper scripts aren't backwards compatible with the older ndiswrapper.

In otherwords, if you successfully installed a 8187 windows driver with a previous version of ndiswrapper, those drivers will be copied into /etc/ndiswrapper/* and a scipt/text file will be created in the same dir.  This text file has whatever magic that's needed to run the driver.
Remove this driver folder and reinstall the driver with whatever method you used before.  It might help?

I wish I could be more helpful.  My wireless adapter has the usb chip, and acts like a usb device, but is somehow permanently attached in this laptop.  So they aren't exactly the same.

I know they are closely related and I didn't have to do anything unusual aside from a new version of ndiswrapper.
