Recommendations for a new Wireless Device to replace a WUSB600N V2 USB device
I'm out on the prowl for a new Wireless Device to replace my WUSB600n Version 2 by Linksys. Main reason behind this being the method for getting the driver to work on Linux under kernel 2.6.33 is now failing (something missing under this new kernel revision that just doesn't go gravy when compiling the driver as I understand it). I no longer wish to put up with the bull of waiting while the rest of the Linux universe speeds ahead of me while I have to make sure the kernel doesn't get upgraded past 2.6.32. Plus the fact that this piece of hardware still ties me to Windows to double check the internet connection and make sure it is working slightly annoys me.
What is a nice Wireless Device, preferably USB (PCI/PCI-E is okay as well.), that is supported well under Linux without the need to rely on driver releases from outside the Linux community, or at least has a company driving releases of the necessary driver to keep up with the latest kernel revision?
Also if it can be found at famous local stores, in-store preferably, like Best Buy and such that would be a plus. That way if the device got a hardware revision unknown to the masses and no longer works on Linux when I get my copy I can easily return it without worrying about shelling more money to reship the device back from whence it came.
