I am about to go buy a wireless card today (or soon) but I've heard alot about certain cards not working.... what cards do you suggest I get?
I am using Redhat Fedora Core. I am using the linux 2.4 kernel.
I tried using a linksys card but I couldn't get it to work, and I need to buy a wirelss card for my mother's computer (she uses windows XP) and I know that my linksys card will work on it, so I need to know what wireless card I should get besides linksys.
its one of the new cisco ones (2.4 or something). But, I figure that I need to buy another wireless card anyway, i might was well buy one that will work on my machine, then i can put the linsys ones of my mother's computer.i know a way in which i could get the linksys one to work, but i'd need to download the newest source and recompile or something like that, but since my mom's machine doesn't ahve a cd burner, i cn't copy 40mbs of stuff on a floppy. :/
It is highly recommended that you use only a single brand for all your wireless needs. So you need to settle in on a brand, and don't mix it with other brands. Many of them, in spite of standards, won't work with their competitors brands. By doing that, it should save you a lot of grief.
