    USB PCMCIA Adapter


    Hi I have a Dell Inspriron, that came with some dell wireless card that isn't compatible with linux. Rather than use ndiswrapper I thought I'd use my PCMCIA wireless card. One problem - Dell doesn't come with PCMCIA slots, they use CardExpress or some crap. So does anyone know of any USB to PCMCIA adapters that will work with linux? OR a CardExpress to PCMCIA adapter that will of course work with linux? Any advice would be apreciated =\.

    I think most usb-pcmcia adapters should work with linux :\ Maybe check here:

    Though Ndiswrapper would be much easier/faster/cheaper.
