I have a sweex wireless usb key and wondered if there were any linux drivers for it out there?
The reference is -

Any help appreciated

From what I can see on the disc via Vista, rt73 and rt2500 are mentioned in all set ups except the hidden auto install for vista. Not dure if or which of those is the driver?

lsusb states-

Bus 0001 Device 001 ID 1d6b0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Thats a rt73 device. (although in some rare cases it contains the rt2570 chipset).
Just try the rt73 (legacy) or the rt73usb (in-kernel) drivers.
