wasnt sure whether to post this in this forum or the networking forum, sorry

Im pretty new to linux. So i have a wireless PCI card with a ra2500 chipset and i get everything installed properly with the drivers and utility that came from the website, only when i run the utility and it connects to something the system crashes. Im sure this isnt a good thing...

I also have a linksys wusb11 v2.8 which im just about ready to permanently switch to but it seemed to be a lot more complicated.

help please.
