    Need Wireles Card for Laptop

    Can someone provide list of working wireless cards for laptops?
    I need something for a end user (something that will work out of the box).


    Thank you,

    My Linksys WUSB54GC works natively with the rt73usb driver.

    All I had to do was add "rt73usb" to my /etc/modules file. I am using Hardy. However, I was able to get it working in Gutsy with ndiswrapper, though it may not have been necessary.

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    Just add "rt73usb" at the end and reboot.

    The Netgear WG511T works without in Hardy perfectly. Just slide the pcmcia card in and then enable the restricted driver for it and reboot and it works. I went through 3 different wireless cards for my wife's laptop and none worked. I finally found some threads here that said the WG511T worked out of the box, so I took a chance and it works great.

    Note - you have to get the WG511T (the T is important). Do a search on the forums for it and you'll see.

    I have the WG311 ( i think it's full model is WG311NA, but I could be wrong ) I can't get that silly card to work. Thanks for the tip.
