Mepis has always supported any cards I have used, though admittedly they were all Atheros based - a compaq AR5212 and a Trust Turbo G pcmcia. Also a dlink PCI card. But remember the chipsets can vary even in the same model from the same manufacturer. It should be easy enough to get any card running under ndiswrapper if you have the original windows install files.

another vote for the Atheros chipset. i have 2 of them one mini PCI and one PCMCIA and both have been great in every distro i've tried. Automatically detected in SimplyMEPIS, Ubuntu, Suse 9.3, 10.0, Vector, and Kanotix. I've been able to install the madwifi drivers for the rest of the distros i've tried though and gotten it going rather painlessly.Desktop: Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz 1.5 GB RAM Ubuntu/XP Pro
