    *moved to Laptops section*

    I've heard that D-link's cards work pretty well in Linux, but I'm not 100% on that. I remember seeing stuff about that in the Laptops Links sticky at the top of this section. Check that out and see what you can find.

    Yeh the d-link cards even say that they are linux compatable on the' box'... They use the realtek chipset (or any other brand that uses the Realtek chipset
