    Question WiFi in Fedora Core 4


    I have an ancient emachine (633 ids) with FC 4 on it. I am looking to buy a wireless card for it, but didn't know where to begin. If anyone could recommend a PCI card that is compatible or point me to some relevant reading material (threads, hardware lists, etc.), I would be very grateful.

    Thanks for your time.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that I am not looking for anything fancy. Cheaper is better.

    the best wifi's for Linux are the intel onces , since also Dell choose the intel wifi in their Linux Laptops , i would recommand this Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG , i have it in many computers and it's perfect.

    and Fedora 4 uses the 2.6.x kernel so there is no problem in this .

    I greatly appreciate your help. The lack of wireless was delaying a project of mine, but thanks to such a fast reply, I can get on with it immediately.
