It works for me, I used the rt73 tarball in order to use the Asus WL-167g on my Gentoo inspiron 640m intel core 2 duo
1) wget http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt73-cvs-daily.tar.gz
2) tar xzvf rt73-cvs-daily.tar.gz
3) cd rt73-cvs-2008030603/Module/
4) make
5) make install
6) modprobe rt73
7) ifconfig -a (you should see your new wifi interface named as wlan*)

cheers,
youri

People that have a V1, must use the rt2570 module.
So, where is V1 or V2 written ? Only on a sticker located on the side of the box, below S/N et MAC address.

If you don't have the box anymore, you have to plug it in an USB slot and see the output of lsusb[/color10hihejs] command.
If it is a V2 it will appear like that
Bus 00x Device 00y ID 0b051723 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.

Note that it exists another version Asus WL-167g E that have a Broadcom chip.
