What wireless board works on Suse 10.1
Okay, since I can't get my Linksys Wireless card to work (see "Problem
with Linksys WMP54GS and Suse 10.1" on 3/2/07), what wireless card
will work out-of-the-box, without ndiswrapper, on SuSe 10.1? I
checked the Novell/Suse compatability list and it isn't clear. The
"sticky" message on this list answering this question isn't helpful
either. It just gives a bunch of pointers, each of which is vague
with a lot of special steps which seem to work for some people and not
others or some special revision of a board or another. I am just
looking for one PCI wireless card (supporting wireless g hopefully)
that works without any problems, ndiswrapper, special kernel, etc.
I will buy that board.

You usually can get an Atheros card working without problem with the madwifi driver, it's just a kernel module (no windows drivers). Ralink cards also work very nicely on Linux.
Intel cards usually work because the drive is open source like madwifi
I've never heard that you need an special kernel to use a wireless cardPut your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein
