WPC11 ver 4 card - did anyone get it to work?


i was just curious if anyone got the wpc11 ver 4 card to work? if they did what distro? what method (ndiswrapper, or the realtex drivers)? what kernel? I have slackware 9.1 with a 2.2.24 kernel, and i wanted to set it up. before i get any further, i want to know if i should upgrade kernel, or switch distro. I read alot about this card, but no one was clear if they got it to work or not. thank for the help.

Here's my iwcofig:

Code:
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

sit0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11b  ESSID:"linksys"  Nickname:"linux"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437GHz  Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
          Bit Rate=11Mb/s   Tx-Power:20 dBm   Sensitivity=0/3
          RTS thr=2432 B   Fragment thr=2432 B
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:100/100  Signal level:-59 dBm  Noise level:-256 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

Keep in mind that I am not using WEP, so I don't know how it works with it. I have MAC address restriction on my router because I was having problems with getting the Mac iBook and airport extreme card working with WEP, so just got rid of it.
