Re: WiFi para Debian en LapTop ACER

I am composing this reply on a Dell Latitude D610, currently running Xubuntu 8.10, equipped with a LinkSys WUSB54GC 802.11g USB WiFi adapter, and it has been working just great. It was detected automatically under both Xubuntu Intrepid and Fedora 9/10. I would imagine that it would be picked up by anything running a newer 2.6 kernel. It was not automatically detected under Knoppix 5.1.0 but was picked up by Backtrack 3. Although I haven't gotten to try it yet, I would expect that with the latest RC of Etch that it should be discovered.

I'll do my best to translate this message to English:

"Hello :)

My Acer laptop has a built-in WiFi, but lately it does not work very
well. I am going to disable it through the BIOS. Thus, I have to buy a
new WiFi adapter, I don't know wether USB or PCMCIA. I want that,
during Debian install process, this adapter would be properly
recognized and configured without any problems, in order to be able to
use a Netinstall.

Would a Linksys work? Other brand(s), model(s)? What would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Regards from Ciudad de México,

Norma Angélica Ruíz Servín"
