I won't say my Mandriva boxes running the Belkin 54g USB are faster than an ethernet card, but, they far outperform the same PC running WinXP and the Belkin 54g USB.
I'm running Mandriva 2007 on an HP Vectra XE-310 with a stalk of celery in the processor socket and 384mb of RAM. I'm putting a minimum workstation and internet station configuration on them. They've been running great so far. when done, I should have about 13 of them set up, with about six running wireless.

I'm using it too, on a bcm4318 radio in my lappy. With the winderz driver it
logs into my local network just as fast as an ethernet connection.
