    I found that the D-Link AirPlus G+ DWL-G650+ Rev Bx wireless cardbus adapter uses the same chipset and firmware files as the Linksys WPC54G v2 card.

    Given this I attempted to install the drivers of the DWL-G650+ Rev Bx version 2.02 in my laptop to enable all advanced function of the card.

    Then I uninstalled all drivers from my card and I deleted all registry entries related to Linksys.

    I rebooted and inserted the card. At this point I told Windows to use D-Link Windows XP drivers. Then I rebooted.

    Then I told windows to upgrade the drivers and use Linksys drivers instead. I rebooted one more time and now I have several options in advance properties.

    I wonder what they mean.

    Advanced options:

    802.11G Draft Number: Defaults to Draft 6 (other: Draft 5)
    Authentication Mode: Defaults to Open Authentication (Other: Auto; Shared)
    CCX Security Type: Defaults to None (other: External; LEAP)
    Desired Basic Rate Set: 1,2,5.5,11 Mbps (other: 1,2,5.5,6,11,12,24; OFDM 6,9,24; Up to 12Mbps; Up to 18Mbps; Up to 24Mbps; Up to 36Mbps; Up to 48Mbps; Up to 54Mbps)
    Desired BBS Type: Infrastructure (other: 802.11 Ad-hoc; High speed Ad-hoc)
    Desired iBBS Protection: Standard (other: None)
    Desired SSID: default
    Desired Supported Rate Set: All (other: 1,2 Mbps; 1,2,5.5,11 Mbps; 1,2,5.5,11,22; All OFDM; Up to 18Mbps; Up to 24Mbps; Up to 36Mbps; Up to 48Mbps; Up to 54Mbps)
    Desired Tx Power: Auto (other: Level 1; Level 2; Level 3; Level 4; Level 5)
    Desired Tx Rate: Auto (other: 1; 2; 5.5; 6; 9; 11; 12; 18; 22; 24; 36; 48; 54 Mbps)
    ELP Support: Disabled (other: Enabled)
    Fragmentation Threshold: 4096
    LeapEnabled: Disabled (other: Enabled)
    LeapUserName: tiwlan
    Mixed Mode: Disabled (other: Enabled)
    Mode 4x: On (other: Off)
    MultiRegulatory Domain: Disabled (other: Enabled)
    Network Type: 11g (other: 11a; 11a&g; 11b)
    Power Mode: Continuous Access Mode (Other: Maximum Power Save)
    RTS Threshold: 4096
    Short Preamble: Off (other: On)
    Spectrum Management: Enabled (other: Disabled)
    WEP Option: WEP disabled (other: WEP enabled)

    I have to comment that after doing all of this I started getting several network disconnection. Becuase of this I'm just going to use D-Link drivers for a while.

    The D-link driver file I used could be found in here:
    ftp://216.241.15.12/pub/drivers/DWL-G650+/Driver_DWLG650+Ai rPlus_Bx_2.02.zip

    There is a the newer version 2.04 but I have not tryed it yet. The file is in here:
    ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/wireless/dwl-g650+_rev_Bx/dwl-g650+_rev_bx_drv_v204.zip
