Is Cnet cwp-854 supported??

Hi all, I'm about to buy a wlan card but I'm not sure which cards are cupported by linux. I found a c-net cwp-854 and want to know if it's supported for the latest kernels. I looked on google, but just found old forum topics and an old wlan database. Maybe new kernels support this card?? Does anyone know if it's supported??

Thanks in advance.

This cards uses the Realtech RTL-2560 chipset. Drivers are available here but I would rather buy a card with in-kernel support.

Hi. Yes, I know what you mean, that's why I finally ordered a card with kernel support (Edimax EW-7126). Thanks for your reply.
