    Thanks, RaLink chipset it is

    On a side note, I see AMD will be opening up ATI graphics drivers soon

    Why not D-Link?

    They also have RaLink-based adapters: see their DWL-G510 (PCI) or DWA-140 (wireless N USB)

    I would third the 'steer clear of dlink' comments - I've had nothing but trouble with their wireless stuff and linux.
