Re: wireless card
so after some fiddling, i made the asus wl-107g card to work. the rt2x00
drivers from sourceforge didn't work for me - i was able to compile it
but couldn't make the card talk to the router or obtain the address (it
required SSID broadcast to work at least partially, but not fully - and
our administrator definitely dislikes the idea to use SSID broadcast)...
so i tried to use ndiswrapper and everything works like a charm. maybe,
someday in the future i'll have more time to dig into the problem and
try the gpl'ed driver again.
thanks to all people who replied to my question.
