    You have the 802.11 G? You are in a very bad spot, as it is. http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/

    There is limited [if any] support for anything but the B revision right now under Linux. Can't your card change modes? [I hope you didn't buy a card that's only G, because that standard is poorly supported anyway in terms of connectivity. Yes, it's faster, but where are you going to use it?]

    I have my wireless G ,and its also a linksys working, using a dericvate of the windows drivers and ndiswrapper.

    The wmp54g is a linksys card and that one uses the broadcomchip, so ndiswrapper is your god in this thread. And if i'm correct you need the Broadcom 94306 reference.

    Check this out : http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/
    And here's a pretty guide : http://www.linux-wireless.org/Instal...rapper-0.7.txt

    I see they have even a link to Redhat RPM packages, so should be easily installable.

    If you have problems come back here,

    Cheers
