Any progress re Wireless?
Hi, it's a while since I've used my old pc which has Ubuntu loaded. I am looking now to try another distribution, but the key to whether I make much use of it will be wireless internet connectivity. With Ubuntu (Hoary) I had to use ethernet cable, but since the router is located in a different part of the house that did not go down well with my wife, as about thirty feet of cable was required. She and the dog tripped over it frequently...
That was all well over a year ago. My question is this: is there a distro now which comes remotely close to a 'work out of the box' solution on wireless networking? Or conversely is there a pci card or usb stick which will? Or to be really optimistic is there a guaranteed combination of distro and hardware which will work?
