  Hawking (USB Wireless adapter)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Dish antenna

What doesn't work:

Always the signal strength indicator lights.

And it depends on what it's plugged into.

On the Inspiron 1525, (32-bit Maya) works perfectly most of the time, but does get an occasional USB ehci enumeration port error, then it won't work at all. (have a fix)

On the Inspiron 5110, it has worked, but won't work now at all.
Buggy ehci problem on both the 32-bit and 64-bit Maya

What was done to make it work:

On the Inspiron 1525, found a fix online and wrote a script to unbind the ehci port enumeration error, then it works flawlessly.

Additional notes:

This is a Hi-Gain USB Dish Adapter. (Legacy product)
Uses Atheros / Zydas driver.

Great when it works.
