    USB wireless adapters with best linux compatibility


    I am looking to buy a wireless USB adapter for a computer I'm going to install linux on. It's an older computer. What are some wireless USB adapters that are easiest to setup with linux? I know it probably depends greatly on which distro I go with, so it's probably not an easy answer. But I figured there were probably some adapters that people have found most widely adopted/compatible.

    Buy Edimax branded cards because they use opensource ralink drivers.

    Thumbs up SparkLAN WL-685R WLAN 802.11g 54Mbps Wireless USB Dongle (Ralink RT2571WF)

    I bought mine from OxfordTEC. Plug and Play... no drivers to install. I tried it with Ubuntu and open Suse. It instantly detected my home wireless network. I'm very pleased with this product!
