Wireless Adapters for Linux 802.11g or b
I've been searching my second best linux friend (after this forum) google for information on linux friendly adapters or ways of trying to get them to work. I found a post from http://wireless.org.au that summerizes what I have found so far and need assistance with so I'll just post it here.
Broadcom 802.11g is what is built into my laptop. :-( But I could get another there is a well supported "new" card I could get for linux OS.
What I'm really interested is if anyone has tried any with Linux and if so what where the results.
My understanding is that currently there are *no* 802.11g style cards that will work under Linux (or *BSD) as they are all using the Broadcom chipset and Broadcom have not released any drivers, or information on how to write a driver, to the open source community.
As an extra problem, apparently some 802.11b manufacturers are starting to use Broadcom chipsets on their 802.11b cards with no changes to the external packaging, so if you happen to pick one of these up by accident and want to use it under Linux then you're stuffed. :-(
Thanks for any of your ideas or comments,
