So you post a request here, without URL I might add, and expect to have a driver waiting for you one day later?

The unfortunate response to this thread is that I was able to find a beta driver for Linux for this card. But it also requires a much newer kernel, sorry. I also will say that if you are thinking about any type of "g" communication then in reality your best solution is a wireless access point with a 10 baseT ethernet connection.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

the only acess point i have is my WRT54G..and thats what i need to get the connection from.

i guess freesco is unable to provide a solution for me, then? i cannot have any cables between here and the AP

I have set up my wireless AP and Freesco using a wire. I don't think you will find too many pre-made firewalls with wireless support as you requested.

I may suggest you try the latest version of Knoppix which has support for wireless cards. You then will have to set up this machine as your firewall and router for the rest of your machines.

Good luck. Keep us posted
