I have the same card and am using the 2100 router wired at the moment, but so far have not found anything about this card on linux. I have a feeling that there are two options here, porting the windows drivers or righting linux ones. I have no idea how to go about either.
I'll keep looking...

It appears that this has a broadcom chipset, mine does anyway. now we need to find out what chipset it is so we can find drivers for it, i have a feeling broadcom will be supported.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Wireless Networking and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Broadcom isn't one of the best supported but mine does work. Can you post the output from:
lspci

It may work with ndiswrapper:

ok, on to something here i think, loads of the adapters listed on the ndiswrapper site have the pciid 14e4:4320 - but none are that chip... does that matter?
