i'm not just talking free, either. if free doesn't exist, does commercial exist?

You can use WPA with WPA Supplicant and it does support ndiswrapper. I haven't tried it myself yet, but I will eventually.

nice!

question, though.

i saw the following:

Supported wireless cards/drivers

* Host AP driver for Prism2/2.5/3 (development snapshot/v0.2.x/v0.3.x; WPA and WPA2)
* Linuxant DriverLoader with Windows NDIS driver supporting WPA (WPA, but not WPA2)
* Agere Systems Inc. Linux Driver (Hermes-I/Hermes-II chipset) (WPA, but not WPA2)
* madwifi (Atheros ar521x)
* ATMEL AT76C5XXx
* Linux ndiswrapper
* Broadcom wl.o driver
* Intel ipw2100
* Intel ipw2200
* Wired Ethernet drivers
* BSD net80211 layer (e.g., Atheros driver) (FreeBSD 6-CURRENT)
* Windows NDIS drivers (Windows; at least XP and 2000, others not tested)

how can i translate these into actual wireless products?

for example, i have 3 802.11g wireless adapters:

netgear WG111
DLINK ???
US Robotics ???

i'll fill in the ??? when i get home.

do any of these "fit the bill" above?

how can i research what products "fit the bill?"

at the end of the day, we ought to translate the above into actual end products b/c that is what newbies like me will understand.

it looks like the netgear wg111 is supported in some fashion...

i guess i have to figure out what driver to use on linux.

that's for another day, though.
