    Doubt that you'll find some. Try ndiswrapper with the Win drivers perhaps.

    You have to use ndiswrapper as there is no native broadcom drivers for this. They haven't really spec'd them to reverse engineer that I know of. Supposedly they are working on a total rewrite of the bcm4xx driver to handle these N PHY chipsets. If you live in EU and got the EU version then you likely have the *not a pile of crap* arethros chipset and everything should just work great natively with any recent kernel. Otherwise, you use ndiswrapper and hope you can get the newer driver working otherwise its going to lock your system up just like it does to windows. Linksys has a really bad track record on their latest line of products after the cisco acquisition IMHO. This product is just one of the many newer products they have released with seemingly very little, if any QA. To me on the 2 cards or array of drivers that I have looked at there is something wrong with the cards themselves even in windows. I've only seen them make systems incredibly slow just by having their drivers installed and you see the same behavior under ndiswrapper in linux. Uninstall or unload the driver and system speeds back up significantly.
