No, its not. Its a PCMCIA card for my laptop.

Hmm, I guess I can't since I'm not using wlan-ng drivers.

Cool, but one question. Where do I get the windows drivers? I mean,
usually the drivers downloaded for winxp have all sorts of other crap
besides the drivers. How do I know which files are the actual drivers
and which are irrelevant crap? Plus, Linksys doesn't have a page for
the WPC11v3 anymore...only v4 (and v4 uses a different chipset, I think
mine uses prism3). Any ideas?
