We give a new proof that for a finite group $G$, the category of rational $G$-equivariant spectra is Quillen equivalent to the product of the model categories of chain complexes of modules over the rational group ring of the Weyl group of $H$ in $G$, as $H$ runs over the conjugacy classes of subgroups of $G$. Furthermore, the Quillen equivalences of our proof are all symmetric monoidal. Thus we can understand categories of algebras or modules over a ring spectrum in terms of the algebraic model.
