This is what is printed in the syslog when the card is inserted and removed.

the linksys 802.11g card uses the Broadcom AirForce chipset; so given Broadcom's
history of (not) providing specs for their chipsets to the Open Source community
I'd say don't hold your breath for Linux support. <A

Once drivers exist we'll most likely ship them. So far they don't.
Since it doesn't look like drivers will exist short term I'm marking this
request as defered :(
