Update: Oh, and do download and try the drivers from the Linksys support site (for WinXP, not Vista), for whatever version you find that you have.
Update 2: You must have version 1. I looked up the FCCID, and looked at the label they have on file, and it has no explicit version printed (as you indicated).

It doesn't seem that the rev numbers match up. From one of the .inf files that I looked at, it looks like it could be a version 01.Code:00:0a.0 "Network controller " "Broadcom Corporation [14e4]" "BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller " -r02 "Linksys " "Unknown device "
@ShaxxiE - you might try out WPC300N+others-x64 from that link in your other thread. To prevent more jumping around, let's try to keep the conversation on this thread. I think that others can benefit more from this one because this thread is becoming very popular.
Okay ill stick to this thread from now on.
I do think i have Version 1 as it definitely doesn't have a version written on my Wlan adapter, and i got this W Adapter when Wireless first because popular... a good few years ago.....
I have just installed this 64bit driver from >ubunturules< thread but again i am getting 1 light on the WLAN in System Area at top left of screen when its trying to log into my network.... but still no connection.
The WPC300N_others-x64 drivers do not work at all, they completely remove the wireless altogether.
Ive spent over 12 solid hours on this. I think ive earnt myself a new WLAN card. Which is the best one compatible with Ubuntu Hardy?
I really appreciate the step-by-step help from both of you. Any thoughts on where I should take this problem next with trying to connect to my own home router?
Let's see if we can see your home router.Code:sudo iwlist scan
EDIT: I just figured out that the your last scan was not from your place and that is why I did not see your home router. The previous scan did show that there are two sites (yours and another site) and they are using the same channel. Both signals are somewhat strong. You might try changing the channel of your router (something else less than 12) and then try to connect.

After trying and reading (a lot of both) I got my Broadcom 4328 working, stable, and relatively fast, with WPA2 and static address.
USB option that had a great bang for the buck for me (got it plugged into the "kitchen laptop"), though you'll likely find more reliable information on wireless devices on some Linux compatibility chart.
I'm sure we can get your existing device working, though I don't know how much more time you're willing to put into it.
