and maybe you can list 3 wireless cards whose drivers were supplied by microsoft/windows not by the vendor.

if you are asking this you must have ifno that sais there are only 2 that work in linux (not saying this is case, just betting it is a trick question somewhere)

if you want m to find something tell me why I should, I don't need wireless cards, if you do you find them, don't trick us into doing it. and out fo the box depends on your settings, if you have the modules load or statically compiled, or a new enoguh kernel, sure out of the box, if YOU set it worng they won't same thing for windows you know a bad setting will screw it up.. more to the point will screw you up as you seem to be the one having the problems.

exodist,
perhaps you ought to run that spell checker on your email client, I'm seeing quite a few errors, and what exactly did I say to you to cause your hostility?

the fact that you said people are deluded if they think linux is easyer after learning it, unless that was someone else, but as you said before, was I directing the comments to you? at first I was not, though I admit it has become that way, I am being hostle to one who calls me a liar.

as for spelling I was on ridalin from 2'nd to 7'th grade before they took me off the perscription when they found my add was incorrectly diagnosed. I came out of it with a memory block and have forgotten all grammer skills, but despite my lack fo english education resulting ironcially froma computer error in microsoft windows I have NO trouble with linux that isn't in windows as well.

well spaz,
I have 5 different wireless cards working with various linux distros here, so there must be 3 that would work out of the box, that is if you had an access point and more than one machine...

what? you're talking about wireless support out of the box. once again, what does this have to do with linux? the vendor provides the drivers for windows. you're argument in your question reads to me that windows is the reason the wireless cards work. i say the vendor supplying the wireless card drivers for windows is what makes it work. you're saying that wireless cards in linux don't work. i'm saying that's patently false. there are network cards that do work in linux.

again, what does out of the box have to do with linux? if the vendor provided drivers like they do for windows, wouldn't they work out of the box?
