finding a good linux PCI desktop wireless adapter
Posted: Wed Jan 24, 2007 8:40 pm
does anyone know of a good brand/model of a PCI desktop wireless network adapter? I am trying to sell my old desktop as a Linux computer and I need to put a wireless network adapter in.
Thanx in advance

My Belkin PCI F5D7000 v3 wifi card works. It uses the Ralink RT2500 chipset, which is approved by the FSF.

Setting up WPA encryption is not the easiest, you have to edit text files, but it does work.

cool. yeah I have WPA encryption. How did you set it up?
EDIT: I guess I would need to get one that works "out of the box" so I don't need to change the files to make WPA encryption work
