I suspect the best reason for having a G card for the Z is so that you can run your G router in G-only mode for best overall performance of all connected systems.
That is excatly why I want to run a G card on my router.
In a thread in the networking and security, I discussed the wcf54g, wpa and Z drivers.
Linksys specifically told me that there was no linux driver for the card. However, elsewhere there does seem to be some progress.
I too want 802.11g for g-only access points.
Yes it is this thread:http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11082
The problem is that there are 2 linux drivers athttp://www.agere.com/mobility/wireless_lan_drivers.html
7.18 and 7.22
The 7.18 drivers are stable but do not support the card (atleast if my assumption is true on that the Hermes II.5 or WL60040 chip is used in this card - if someone has the card testing it will verify that!). The 7.22 drivers do support the card but crash the kernel. So what could be done is finding out what is wrong with the 7.22 ones. If someone can figure that out I think there will be a lot of happy Z'ers
802.11g + WPA is likely what many networks will become. But quite a risk buying a card that may not work at all to test drivers.
disclaimer: I don't have the card so this is all from reading web pages and comparing some files from those two drivers.
