Re: supported wireless cards

Just curious,

What desktop wireless cards (PCI) work "out of the box" with FC 4? A
friend wants to migrate from Windows now but has to have wireless
because the desktop machine is too far from the router.  I've been
searching and all I can find are supported chipsets (which I understand
is critical). However, does anyone actually have a specific PCI card
that works?

Thanks anyone.

Unfortunately manufactures have been known to change the chipset in
cards and use the same model number.  One Dlink Air-Plus DWL-G650 card
may have a prism chipset while another will have an atheros chipset.
Each will need different drivers.

About the only way to know for sure is to get the card and run lspci to
find out what is really inside.

Cisco Aironet works fine for me - like this one on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Cisco-Aironet-350-Series-Wireless-PCI-LAN-Card_W0QQitemZ5877615271QQcategoryZ101281QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
