Good linux-friendly wireless LAN adapter?


I need to connect my desktop via wireless to my network. I'm running Red Hat 9. Right now I have a Microsoft Wireless USB adapter (MN-510) but cannot, for the life of me, get it to work under Linux. Any suggestions out there for linux friendly WLAN adapters other than PCMCIA cards since this is for a desktop and not a laptop?

A USB one would be the best...though I suppose a PCI adapter could work.

You should just get a Linksys WET-11 Wireless bridge and plug it into your ethernet card. Easy as that! I think that you can snag one for around $100US.

(of course, you'll have to config the bridge for your wlan)

Hope this helps!
