Netgear WGT624 with official Linux support??!!


Hi,
I want to buy a Notebook (Acer Aspire 1501LMi) with WLAN support so I was searching for a Wireless Router because I still don't have WLAN-Network.
I found the Netgear WGT624 on http://www.netgear.com/products/deta...T624.php?view=
And it says that:
Operating Systems Supported- Windows 98 and later, Macintosh OS 8 and later, Unix, Linux
!!!!!
Could anybody confirm that please, that would be great.
I still don't believe it because I downloaded the Technical Specifications and it discribes how to connect to it with every OS appart of Unix or Linux!
Please help me, confused....
THANKS

As it's an access point, any os can use it. What you need is a wireless card that is supported in linux.

On a sidenote, it's likely that the AP is actually a cut down pc running linux. My Netgear DG834 certainly is
