eHome -- are you home?

Alright, this is bullshit.

I bought an eHome wireless NIC a while ago for really cheap. Haven't heard of eHome? Neither had I, but it didn't take me long to realize that it was actually part of D-Link Corporation when I sent my rebates to a DLink corporate address, and when I read the message: "Copyright © D-Link Corporation/D-Link Systems, Inc. All rights reserved. eHome Networking and the eHome Networking logo are registered trademarks of D-Link Corporation or its subsidiaries in the United States and other countries..."

So, I figured: D-Link is a popular company, they're not going anywhere, they sell tons of devices, so my chipset is probably well supported in Linux, right? Wrong.
