WUSB54GC Wireless configuration

I need some help installing and configuring this device. The unit is a USB stick linksys WUSB54GC ver 3.

I'm new to Zenwalk and I want to give it a shot. I just downloaded and install Zenwalk 7. Everything went OK but I don't think the network stick is working. I don't see any available wireless connections available. I went ahead and installed the rt73usb module but I'm still unable to see any wireless connections. So, I have the following questions.

1. How do I find out if this device was installed?

2. How do I test this device?

3. Do I need to install any other modules?

4. Should I go ahead and try to install the Windows drivers?

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure the firmware is rt2870. I've had a lot of problems with this device in linux but i've discovered a possible solution. Obviously you probably can't connect to the internet on your installation so go ahead and download the Ubuntu 12.04 driver for that. When Ubuntu 11.04 launched they fixed the driver and this one works too. I've uploaded a copy of it here: put it on a flash drive/cd or something like that. Plug it into your computer that has linux and put the file you downloaded (rt2870.bin) into /lib/firmware. i'm pretty sure that will work cause that is the directory i got it from. I've never heard of Zenwalk but it should be the same as all linux distros.

Good luck!
