This thread is not for me, but for the people that have had problems in the 42 pages of threads that I've recently read to seek answers for my problem.(See my other new thread, please.)
It seems that many people who make the switch from Microsoft to Linux end up with connection problems if they use wireless dongles.
It happened to me: I went to do a dual-boot with Win and Lin like I had done years before, but since the dongle could not connect - I fried my Windows OS. (Maybe that was a good thing for me, since it's forcing me to get some Linux savvy and not be able to wimp out and bail back to Windows - but I can see how it makes people mad as hell.)
This is my point for this thread: Can you sticky a thread that lists wireless dongles that are Linux-friendly? I got back online in Linux Land by running a cat5 cable from the router, but for people that don't have that option, it sucks.
Hey, I read through 42 pages, can't we prevent others from having to do the same?
