Sorry for coming to this thread late. I have some experience with  
wireless cards in linux and I'd be willing to offer any help I can.

I have a Giga-Byte GN-WP01 in a machine that has worked well with both  
Gentoo and now Ubuntu. It is also a ralink rt61 based pci card, but  
note I don't know if the GT version is the same. It's using the  
rt61pci module now but has also worked with ndiwrapper. What are the  
issues you are seeing with your linksys card?

I'd recommend using a usb based adapter if you are going to buy  
something new. Better reception, easier to move to another machine  
(laptop) and much easier to move around with a usb extension than a  
lossy cable and RP-SMA connector. The ralink rt73 cards are the best  
and my personal favourites. The D-Link WUA-1340 is easy to find around  
here and hasn't been revision bumped yet so you don't need to worry  
which chipset you are actually buying if you shop online etc..
