Depends on theversion you are getting. Mine was branded as .v2 which
is incompatible with the intersil driver. Everytime i tried to load
it, i got a not ready signal. After a bit of search, discovered that
at the time i bought it (february), it was not supported.
My only alternative was ndiswrapper which i ran for a while then
thought it utterly sucked and sold the card ...
