    Wireless network card


    Hi all

    I want to hook my laptop up to my home router and it doesnt come with a built in wireless network card unfortunately

    does anyone recommend a wireless card (either pci or usb) that will work for both windows and linux? Preferably a g not a b. Also if you know it has the prismII chipset then that will be a bonus

    Thanks for any help

    btw, the linux distros that i will be using it with is both gentoo and knoppix. thanks

    Whatever you do, do NOT get Linksys. Even for windows it's a pain in the ass. Then trying to install it for linux, pfft....you better take a day off, maybe 2.

    I have a Zyxel wireless card g standard and it works just fine. The only thing is that you have to use Kernel 2.4.29 or higher because prism54 driver that they use is built in those kernels.
