Question searching for wlan mini-pci


hi there,

my problem is: i want to buy me a new wlan-card (mini-pci, 22mbit preferred) but before buying one i wanted to ask if someone has one running.
is it difficult to setup ?
which cards do you have ?
which cards are supported best ?
i know there are some problems with 22mbit-cards but arent there any supported 22mbit-cards ?
btw, is it reasonable to look for 22mbit or is the difference between 11mbit and 22mbit too marginal ??

and finally, as im still not sure which card to buy, could you please name your card you have working so i have a name to go for
maybe you even know where to get it

many thanks in advance

Here is a really good list of various wireless cards.

From what (little) I know, stay away from cards with a Broadcom chipset, as I don't think they provide any support fro Linux drivers as of yet.

I have a NetGear MA311 (Prism chipset) and it worked right out of the box with Slackware 9.x
Very easy to set up and works great.

Hope that helps

thx for your reply

i searched for your card and it seems that its a normal pci-card but im looking for a mini-pci (small versions that you can build in your notebooks)

i read about pci-cards which actually use mini-pci-cards so that you just have to open the card and and grab the minipci on them
is this such a card ?

I don't quite understand what you mean. Are you talking about removable PCMCIA type cards?
