    Wireless adapter card for desktop...


    Can you folks recommend a couple of wireless adapters that work with Mint? I am going to have to use wireless to connect to my router on the (first?) machine I will be using Linux on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh, links to some reference material would be okay too.

    What I use on my IBM M57 Tower in Motorcycle Shop is this pci card. It is not the latest and greatest but is cheap and has lasted a long time (has not broke down yet) and gives me good range through steel galvanized walls to my wireless router about 150 feet away inside the house. Linux compatible with all major distros with a 2.6 kernel.

    Read the reviews on the link. Use linux in review search box.

    This USB adapter worked out of the box with various distros. Scientific Linux 6, Debian 6, Ubuntu, Mint to name a few.

    Got this in the mail today. Might be worth getting/looking into if budget fits. Reading comments it has a Atheros Chipset which are pretty Linux friendly also. Sure has a lot of antennas.
