    Need your input on Wireless G.


    OK, I've finally decided to upgrade from 802.11b to 802.11g. My Orinoco Gold card has served me well, but there are times when it stalls. I've read many, many posts on wireless G cards, but have never gotten an idea about which one(s) gives the least amount of trouble to configure. Is there wireless g support built into the newer 2.6 kernels? Or am I going to have to build ndiswrapper support for myself? I also would like WEP to be operational as well.

    In your experience, which wireless card (PCMCIA) is going to give me the least amount of problems to configure and use on my laptop?

    All input and help is appreciated.

    Netgear WG511 is the ownage. There is a tutorial I wrote for it, under "Yoper Tutorials". The firmware you'll have to get from me, but just send me an email and I'll hook you up.
