I browsed alot about linksys and didnt see anything.
I use a linksys wireless b router, wmp11 v4, (its a good router); But it only works on windows, and i didnt find this one out till.. um. 14 Days after i bought it. Which means i couldnt return it vause it had been um 14 days. lol. That was the limit.
Now ive heard theres a way aroound all this to were i can actually get online.
Now my pc is an old one, Literally. So i dont have much resources of the requirements, so i want to go with slack or freebsd. I used suse for non online purposes, not a bad os. BUT back to the point. What driver do i install to set up a driver or anything to were i can get online. Windows is a good OS, but linux better suits my needs.
*If there is already an article on this in the forums im very sorry and if you can please direct me, but i ran a scan and didnt find anything.

Umm... is the wireless router called a WMP11 or the card? If it's the card, then you should be able to use the Prism drivers. If it's not double check the identifier. From what I see the WMP11 is the network card (aka NIC) not the router.
This forum discussion on using this card with FreeBSD might help.

What are your hardware specifications?
If you have to use Windows, I would suggest Win98SE. That will work just fine on a PI/133MHz or better.
Is this your only computer?
I know this is not a direct answer to your question, but you seem to have a pre-conceived "solution" and I am wondering if there might not be an alternative.

I have a gateway, 128 mb ram, 9 gig hdd, and another 4 gig hdd. and a 650 amd athlon processor, an old beast, but it gets me through the day. Its a linksys wireless b router pci card. I dont know much about it since im new to routers, i used a modem most of my days, but ran tight on cash. And this computer runs the router fine, but i want to run it on linux!, thank you
