PCMCIA WiFi cards?
I'm thinking of getting an 802.11b capable PCMCIA card and I am looking
for one that is well supported in the later 2.4 kernel versions.
Googling around it seems there is quite a bit of information that is 2
to 3 years old.
What is the state of the current offerings vs. some of the older cards?
Is there a site that I've yet to find that gives comprehensive
information on the currently available cards. I know that the
manufacturers seem to change chipsets and models almost on a weekly
basis, so is there any hope of purchasing a new card and having it work
reliably in 2.4.2x? I would prefer a current card supported by a GPL
driver rather than a hack using a proprietary one. Is this possible?
If I must search for an older card, I can do that as well. I would
rather purchase one new with a warranty, etc. What vendors would you
Perhaps I am just behind the curve and all this is really a non-issue,
but I am finding a dearth of current information on this topic.
