I was just wondering if anyone was successful in getting the Linksys
WPC54G to work under Linux?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanx! :)

1. Linux Driver for Linksys WPC54G Wireless Card

I installed RedHat Linux 7.3 on an old laptop recently, but I was
troubled to find that Linksys did not provide a driver for Linux.

Fortunately, though, I found out about a Canadian company called
Linuxant ( which makes DriverLoader software (i.e.
something which converts the Windows drivers on the Linksys CD to a
usable Linux equivalent).

Since I noticed there were other posts here with the same frustration,
I wanted to share this information.

Some caveats about the Linuxant product:

(1) It's not free -- Linuxant is a for-profit company and they want
$20 for the DriverLoader software

(2) The driver winds up supporting just the 802.11b, not g, bandwidth

If there's a freeware equivalent out there, I'd be happy to find out
about; please let me know.
