So what card are we talking about here? What is the output of
lshw -C network
Also, I am assuming that you are running Ubuntu 8.10?

actually i am mistaken. ubuntu is recognizing a broadcom network card. how weird is that.

it would be silly to install the broadcom driver i assume.
and linksys support insisted i remove the card until i find the right driver.

apparantly i have to download the broadcom bcm4318 firmware.
if i can find it.
