Recommended wifi card?


Looking for recommendations for a good wifi card for my laptop with a few specifications. I know there is the HCL for this type of thing but it's not like I can sort it by what I need.

First off, needs to be 802.11g I don't mind if it is compatible with multiple types (b/g). In fact, I'd prefer it was but it definitely needs to be compatible with g.

Second, would like something with a nice range. I'm currently using the Airport Extreme (OS X) and I can't pick up any wireless signal but the one in my own house, but my roommate can pick up ours plus the signals of 3 of our neighbors.

That's really all. Would really appreciate some recommendations. Thanks.

Using the HCL search function with keywords "cardbus" and "802.11g" I found the following List of cardbus 802.11g cards in the LQ HCL. My personal favorite is the Netgear WG511T, as it is well supported in Linux and has excellent reception, but I'm sure there are many other fine cards. Hope that helps.

You can even sort the results, for example by "most compatible".
