Looking for a WiFI card


I have recently installed Solaris 10, and got the nasty surprise that my d-link DWL-G520 card (PCI) is not supported. After emailing D-Link, i was told that my card is only compatible with Windows.

Now I am looking for a new WiFi card for my desktop. It has to:
-be compatible with my 108g dlink router
-be solaris compatible
-under $75

I'm curently looking at the Linksys WMP54G card, yet I am unsure of it. If you could give me some advice I would me most grateful.

Thanks in advance,
anubis

At that time no wifi driver is available for Solaris, but this will certainly change with OpenSolaris and/or a future updates.
In the meantime, you can use an external wifi bridge.
I'm currently happy with the asus wl-330g small gear:

which is certainly within your budget and likely to be compatible with your access point.

Indeed, however I believe ndis wrapper wasn't published at the time anubis26 posted.
