We both uses the 570 and the 580 here with debian stable. Allthough i
had some troubles getting the driver in the stock kernel to work with
580 (i ended up downloading driver source from d-link italia and
compile it against the kernel version i was running). The 570 is rock
stable we are using it in gateways and firwalls all around our company
and i have nothing bad to say about it. It uses the tulip driver in
the kernel.
