    Auto detect? hmmm.... but most of the cards out there are now useably in linux with either the ndiswrapper(gpl(free)) or the linuxant.com driverloader that will cost a bit of green....
    both drivers just load up the windoz driver and port it to linux see http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/vie...=106679#106679

    Also linksys is suposed to have a usb wireless nic that is just suposed to work without any drivers but it is wireless b (wusb11)

    (and i wonder if the wusb54g works also but i dont know yet...reasearch it)

    Thanks for the info. I have tried both ndiswrapper and linuxant but they don't support my wireless card. I will buy one of the supported cards. Thanks a million for your reply.

    i'm using a netgear ma101 w/ no problem. but i wouldn't recommend it. i have had problems w/ it in windows and linux, it's just not a reliable card.
