Re: Software and kernel modules for Linksys WPC54G / WPC54GS
Are you looking for WLAN adapters that work easily with linux? I am working
with an adapter based on Ralink's rt2500 chipset (they are pretty common, I
am sure you will be able to find a specific device with it). Getting it to
work was as easy as "module-assistant auto-install rt2500" (using the
rt2500-source package). Ralink GPL'ed their drivers and an OS project took
over maintenance and is working on getting it into the mainline kernel now.
