I thought i was buying a card that would work with b43 and bcm43xx linux drivers. however, I got the 4.1 version which is RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI. The current ralink rt61 userland driver works but you can't put this card into promiscuous mode. I couldn't get the current rt2x00 driver to compile on a recent kernel. the ralink driver should be found in most linux repos. for linux users, there are other chipsets with better drivers than this card.

I am extremely disappointed with Linksys. There is nothing on any of the literature regarding this adapter that states that it will not work under Windows XP 64-bit. In fact, the specifications are: Windows Vista and Windows XP service pack 1 or later. There are no drivers available for XP 64-bit and no ETA as to when there will be. I spent hours trying to install this in a new system, with tech support on the phone and live chat. They both walked me through the same processes I had already done and neither asked at the outset what operating system I am using. The final straw was when they informed me that the only Linksys adapters that are available for XP 64-bit are USB. There are none in PCI. Simply not acceptable. I have been a loyal Linksys customer for at least 10 years. Now I will turn my attention to D-Link.

Excellent Product

on 2/24/2008

I have three working in my house. This one works just as well as the other ones. Easy set up and works very well. Seems to me the connectivity and through put are as good or better than the Speedbooster model. I have both and this one actually works better than the Speed booster wireless card. Although I do have a speed booster router. It works very well with Windows XP. Read More
