    I must buy several wireless pci cards


    I need to buy several wireless cards and I do not want to reward card makers who offer no Linux help at all. I do not want to buy trouble. On the other hand, cost is a factor.

    What do you recommend that is for sale today?

    Thanks.

    Well, I would suggest that you go with cards based around an atheros chipset, these cards use the madwifi driver which ships with Suse and apparaently have support from the kernel (im not exactly sure about this).

    The only card that I can think off the top of my head which is based on an atheros chip is a D-link DWL-520 108 Mbit SuperG version.

    Most card manufacturer's don't support linux, for example netgear wants me to pay them extra in order to get linux/unix support (they offer free Windows support), but after searching for a bit on google, i found out how to get everything working to my specification.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
