Suggestions on wireless cards??

Postby wyotecher20 » Fri May 29, 2009 12:43 am


I just installed Mint 7 and for the first time ever in a linux distro I was able to get my wireless car working. But after staying up to the wee hours of the night I was met with only partial success as my wireless car is unstable and very slow in linux. After so research I found that my card is generally not compatible with linux.
So, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of a good wireless card to use. I'm using a desktop and would like a car that used a PCI or PCI Express slot. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.
