Works! Uses the rtl8187 kernel module in Sabayon 3.4f.
KNetworkManager won't activate it automatically but once I select my essid from the KNetworkManager menu the wired ethernet is disabled and the wireless connects.
Completely disabling the wired ethernet may fix that and I may test that in the future. It is not an issue for me since I don't shut down my system too much.
It cost me under $20 with shipping from NewEgg but I originally saw it in an e-mail from Surplus Computer (only $1 difference). After some research (Google), I found info in an Ubuntu forum that it had worked using ndiswrapper so I got one.
I'm pleased with the results and just wished to pass it on.
Hope y'all get similar or better results!
