Looking to buy a Wireless PCMCIA card


ATM I am looking at a C-Net 54MBit card (That's 802.11G, right?) But I have no idea weather it's linux compatable or not. I have checked the HCL, but it's not in there. Does anyone have any experiance with this card, or can they recommend another one that is linux compatable?

Thanks in advance.

I use a belkin PCMCIA 54g card. The model number is F5D7010. It requires ndiswrapper to work but once this is configured it works every time, no problems. It is one of my HCL entries. Hope this helps.
Regards
Chris

Thats what the internet is for my fine friend
Basically, check the HCL on this site. Also check the card list on the ndiswrapper site at sourceforge. Pretty much any card should work. I have just one piece of advice - dont get one with a Realtek 8180 chipset in! Like most things, dont buy the cheapest and you should be right.

I have Cisco Aironet PCM-350 (802.11b) and Enterasys Roamabout 802.11 a/b/g. They all works out of the Box, but cost a bit more.
