WL-167G V2

RT2500

?

No

Tested in 7.10. Gives errors in dmesg but once I clicked on the nm-applet and selected Manual Configuration, I was able to put in my SSID, etc. I also had to enter DNS info manually. Then I just had to run ifdown wlan0 && ifup wlan0 and I was online. Worked for me with a Linksys router running DD-WRT and WPA-TKIP.

Using 8.04 works fine out of the box! If you have any issue (e.g. slow connection) try to install linux-backports-modules-hardy (For older version of Ubuntu you must instal GPL RT73 driver. Follow the instructions at the bottom of this guide WifiDocs/Driver/RalinkRT73).
