    PCMCIA wireless cards?


    Hi List;

    I'm doing some work in the sticks and they have their M$ network locked down
    tight. I'm looking at getting a PCMCIA wireless card via cingular for
    national wireless access. Any thoughts on if this will work with Linux, any
    thoughts, suggestions, gotcha's etc that anyone is aware of? Anyone else
    doing this with Fedora?

    I currently use the IPW2200 to access wireless hotspots but obviously the
    IPW2200 project wont drive a PCMCIA card. Anyone know what projects to look
    at for this. I've heard of ndswrapper but know nothing about it...

    Thanks in advance for your help...

    See this post. Personally I would recommend a atheros based card, as it works great with the madwifi driver.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
