I hope you are right about the direction being ndiswrapper. If I decided to replace my wireless card (netgear wg311 802.11g) what would you recommend that works out of the box with RedHat, Mandrake or SuSE?
Any "can't miss" cards?

I'm partial to the Netgear MA311 and have three of them, but there are others out there just as good or better. Here is a very good place to start researching Linux wireless options.
I use 802.11b and really see no need at this point to upgrade to 802.11g. "B" has been fast enough for me.
Thing is though, your card WILL work with Linux using the ndiswrapper. Sure you don't want to give it another go? I'm sure someone here can guide you through it. I wish I could.

Did anybody ever get their Netgear working? i installed one, after pulling out the LAN card completely and rebooted but nothing comes up "automatically". i go to MCC to Install New Connection and get as far as it showing a list of drivers from which i'm supposed to choose the correct one... Have tried several, but all to no avail. Any ideas? Have a nice evening!

1. drivers are very small pieces of software - not huge investments like Open Office or ???
2. drivers are specific to the hardware - not something the competition can really take and use unless they are buying your hardware
3. drivers are only written for your customers! The more drivers you write as a hardware co - the more customers you have - the more money you make.
