Linksys Techsupport happily says that they dont hv drivers for the XPMCE or 2K3 hence they 'may or may not work' (quoting their own words) in these OS as such. Bottomline is they dont' support issues under these OS. Is that really an issue of some driver files or its just that they're not sure? A couple of my clients hv reported to hv issues with the adapters which all of a sudden quit working (common issues like no signal, adapter not detected, unknown device, device cannot start, etc) and I cant really find out what and where the issue is, except forums like this..!!! And yeah, are the broadcom drivers the only solution for the issues?
