Does Buffalo WLI-CB-G54S (Wireless PCMCIA Card) Work Under Linux?


I'll make my question short:
I've been unable to figure out whether the Buffalo WLI-CB-G54S works under Linux, or not. I have absolutely no clue as to what drivers to load up and how to activate it anyway.
I tried Gentoo Linux LiveCD 2005.1 and loaded yenta_socket and the necessary pcmcia support, but have no clue as to how I should continue
Any help would be welcome.

Welcome to LQ!

Check Jean Tourrilhes site to see which chipset your card has,
and how it's supported in Linux. If you need help after reading
all the resources available there, post back what you've done
from there to get it working.
