To the best of my knowledge, there are *NO* 802.11g drivers available for linux. For wireless, you'll need to stay with an 802.11b card and AP.

If you will consider a Prism based card or USB widget, then look here for an appropriate device.

I use the MA311 pci card myself, coupled with the wlan-ng driver set.

Cheers--
