Best distro for Linksys AE1200


I am looking for a distro that will support a Linksys AE1200 wireless network adapter (usb) with little configuration, because I am a knob.

Thanks,
Rogue.

Since it appears the only method for getting the adapter to work with linux is ndiswrapper then I would say there isn't one.

So what is your favorite distribution?

I like ubuntu but it's really thick. So probably lubuntu with openbox.
Really anything with apt.

ndiswrapper is a way to use windows drivers with linux where no native one exists. You should be able to get the device working with Ubuntu.

This might be of some help.
