I thought I edited that page (although checking, I see that I didn't.)
The 5007EG is in the older ones but the newest generation is using the
card that Karol mentions--at least, the latest 900 series is using that
Realtek.  I'm going to edit the page in a minute to change the "eee pc"
to "some models of the eee pc."
