I've got a Linksys card:

Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter (WPC54G ver.4)
Ethernet controller: Unknown device 07fe:2220

I was quite surprised to find it worked out of the box in Feisty since
it is and a,b,g card. I'm also far from being a fan of Linksys kit. I've
not upgraded that machine to Gutsy yet, but will try to remember to post
when I have done. I seem to remember it uses the Madwifi driver, but
can't get access to the machine to double check unfortunately - far too
much hassle to get my 2 year old to stop playing Thomas the Tank Engine
to allow me to reboot right now :)
