I can recommend the Ubititi RF sections in general because I've had
several of their cards.  I just meant I know nothing of this particular

The AP and AP-like stuff (like the picorouter, bullet etc) all use the
same Linux-based OS that my Ubiquity LS2 AP uses.  I have both an LS2
and two of the PCI 2 Ghz cards.  The cards work find under Fedora (and
did since FC4, I think).  They show up as an Atheros driver and it works
out of the box.  The AP is just a well-behaved AP that cuts through all
the noise when the previous ones got drowned out trying to fire through
my exterior chicken-wire and stucco walls.
