Recommendation for WLAN Solution wanted!!!


Hi,
I'me running W2k and Suse 9.0 on my PC and I decided to make a WLAN in my flat. But what I don't know is which model is best supported on both OS.

Has anybody recommendations on this issue?

Thanks and kind regards

Fredy

I use the NetGear WG311T and it works fine with Linux. It will also work it windows, so don't worry.

Thank you for the hint!

But I've got recommendations to use Powerline instead of WLAN. Now I installed a lent powerline bridge from zeus. On Windows it works fine. But I'me now looking for a driver for Linux.

Does anybody know from a zeus driver for Linux??

Thanks and regards

Fredy

Ouch, powerline was not a good choice.

Within a year, I would suspect powerline LAN equipment will be out of production. Wi-Fi just beats it in every respect.

The powerline works quite well on my windooze. An i think it has a lot of advantages.
The sole problem I have on Linux is to configure it for the internet access over the USB Port. The powerline adapter has a USB.

How can I configure Linux to take the internet access from the USB port??



Thanks and regards Fredy

I would say your hope of finding a linux driver for your USB powerline bridge adapter isn't looking to promising. From the little info I found on the web it appears that Zeus is a local Switzerland company. Have you tried contacting them yet?

I saw something about a unit with a RJ45 ethernet adapter. This device should be compatable with linux.
