View Full Version : Which wireless dongle?

I'm looking at getting a wireless dongle for my laptop. The shop I went to had four models. I'm not sure which I should get. I'd like to get one that just works with linux, but so far the only one I've had a google result for is the netgear one, and that'll need ndiswrapper.

Here they are:

Netgear wg111
Sweex lw143
Sweex lw053
Sweex lw141

Any ideas on the sweex ones?

I cannot comment on those, but I have a Safecom SWMULZ-5400, and that can be made to work with linux. You need to download and compile the driver from source, but after that it works... just about.
