given up on it - I just want something that works reliably and "out

suggestions about well supported cards.
As a tangent, however, can a business case be made for Red Hat to
develop / market a proper open source wireless adapter line? I realize
that the retail channel hasn't been Red Hat's strongest effort over the

The best pcmcia card for Linux is the "Orinoco Gold Card" by Lucent Tech.
Go onto Ebay > Computers and Type in "Orinoco Gold Card" and you can
pick one up for $10-20 .
Linux Auto detects this card with no hesitation . I use these cards in
my PC's with a PCI to PCMCIA adapter.
To get the right adapter if you go that way is a "Model PCIPC" It has A
Icon of a Texas Instruments on the main chip.
