    You will need to find out what chipset your card uses. You can do this by doing
    Code:
    $/sbin/lspci | grep -i net
    Once you find out the chipset you can determine whether there are Linux drivers for your card. If there are no Linux drivers, you can use your windows drivers but you will need a package called ndiswrapper installed.

    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$ $/sbin/lspci | grep -i net
    bash: $/sbin/lspci: No such file or directory
    [ghosts@localhost Desktop]$ su

    [root@localhost Desktop]# $/sbin/lspci | grep -i net

    You are not supposed to enter the dollar sign as part of the command. Its there to show you that you need to run the command as a normal user. If there is a hash (#) it means you should be root.

    Well, I just Moved back to my original distro, SuSE 10.1, I ran that command in terminal and it gave me this-

    ghosts@Ghosts:~> /sbin/lspci | grep -i net
    02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82562ET/EZ/GT/GZ - PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller Mobile (rev 03)
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Airgo Networks Inc Unknown device 0002 (rev 01)

    Install ndiswrapper using package manager.

    Download USB drivers from :

    http://www.ralinktech.com/

    You need rt73.inf, rt73.sys and rt73.bin

    install as:

    >ndiswrapper -i rt73.inf

    Next see that it is listed:

    >ndiswrapper -l

    execute to find device id as "xxxxxxx"

    > lsusb

    add it to the driver:

    >ndiswrapper -a rt73 "xxxxxxx".

    Configure with gui tool.

    Edited to add:

    This worked for the Linksys WUSB54C USB-B/G stick.

    Well, that card does not seems to have a ralink chipset so the instructions above may not work. You can follow the steps mentioned above, but use your Windows drivers with ndiswrapper instead of downloading the ones suggested above.
