Wifi Card compatability list

Hello all,

I am running into an issue with my wifi card at home. I am running fc4 on a compaq that has a currently unsupported wifi card (broadcom). I recently got it running with ndiswrapper and the windows drivers only for it to stop working when they released a kernel update that I installed.'

I would like to know if there is a list of currently supported wifi cards somewhere out there so that I can think about getting a pcmcia one until this issue is fixed.

I did google around and there are so many lists I just don't know which one to trust.

Check out - that's fairly comprehensive.

Well I have a motorola wireless notebook adapter that is a WN825G and it says it has the broadcom chipset which I gather means its not compatible with FC4. And a hunting I will go for a compatible one.
