If you have a dual boot system with windows check the mac address if it contains
AT76C503A
then
You have a atmel chip set

This is a link to the main page of the atmel support group
http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net/links.html

Here you find a howto install the drivers for a usb type wifi adapters on redhat 8

I have had a look at the linksys site and they have not change the drivers since v2.6 so I advise You to use the atmel driver
