RE: [SLUG] Notebook WiFi Recommendations?


I bought a PCMCIA Orinoco-based card from EE late in December (I think
it's called a ZoomAIR). Works a real treat in Linux! Good driver support
(can even be switched into monitor/PF_PACKET mode with a little kernel
patch!)

CISCO Aironet cards I've heard also work well (and can do monitor too).

Regards,


Dave.

Smith have them in stock just down the road....the price is right too (.

cards....they'd 
get my $$$ :(
