    about to set up a wireless network


    I'm about to setup a wireless network with two or three systems running ubuntu. I was curious if anyone had any experience setting up wireless linux networks. Which cards/routers will most likely cause the least amount of problems for this.

    The cards are the biggest problems, you can try something easy to set up like an Atheros card, they are greate and support a large amount of options through madwifi.
    You can also try Hermes and Aironet cards, they have drivers in the default kernel

    Just avoid Broadcom cards, they simply suck in Linux

    They are chipsets, not brands.
    I think you will need to do some research for brands with these chipsets
