Wireless PCMCIA card
« on: April 11, 2008, 02:35:24 pm »

Does anyone have a recommendation for a wireless pcmcia card that will work with Vector? I installed Vector on an old laptop for a friend who is new to linux and they are delighted with it. The family is not in any way techie and they have just purchased a wireless router and would like to get the laptop connected. I am happy to get it working for them but it would be good to get a steer on what chip sets I am most likely to have success with before I start.

Thanks.

cards based on atheros chipsets are recognised flawlessly and do a great job, no need for ndiswrapper or such helpers.

i'd recommend TPLink's TL-WN6xx series.

I'm using a D-Link DWL-G630. It works fine. $15 at TigerDirect
