Thumbs up Working (Horray) Wireless USB Adapter

Not sure if this is the right place to put
this, but hope this helps somebody.

Have had trouble finding a good wireless
connection with Mandriva, via a PCI card.

Tried the "GetNet Wireless USB Adapter GN-621U"
and this works great.
Just follow the 'README' instructions - "Method 1"
and you should be up and running in no time.

Cost's about 8 in the UK.
Only used it with Mandriva - but it should work
with other distro's.

Hope this helps.

Congrats - despite developments it can still be a pain to get wireless working with Linux.

I have been reasonable lucky but I got my last wifi card from Linux Emporium I am using RALink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI and have never had any issues.

(well I would be if I had access to wifi)

I'm actually using ZTE MF-112 GSM Dongle which I would rate as poor but could be due to the 3 network (which works out cheaper(for me) than any other Internet provider and had the shortest minimum contract). I don't think this is a linux issue because sometimes it works, fine sometimes I can't get DNS and sometimes, and most of the time it is just slow.

Anyway I digress and am just complaining.

This may be worth an entry into the HCL section.
