    I am assuming one of these models.
    Linksys WMP54G v4 (ralink)or Linksys WMP54G-UK v4.1 (rt61)
    and both of the cards works fine.use this command to see wheather modules got loaded or not.
    lsmod
    it should show the rt61 chipset.if its not then
    modprobe rt61
    then use iwconfig and it should show the wireless device there.
