    Wireless PCI Card For Ubuntu 7.10

    Being new to Ubuntu I am looking for a wireless PCI card which will work with the 7.10 version right out of the box. I live in the United States.

    My thanks to all!

    Take a look here:

    I am sure you will find a number of them known to work here.

    I have had real good luck with DLINK in both laptops and desktops. Also
    with Belkin and linksys.
    The only dumb question is the one not asked.

    Thank you for the advice. I should have mentioned that the card would go into a desktop. I have read good things about the "TP Link TL WN550G." Any comments on this card?

    Thanks again!

    My Edimax EW-7128G was cheap and worked out-of-the-box in Kubuntu Gutsy, since it uses a Ralink chipset.
    I do not use Ubuntu any more, nor have I ever used Gnome. Therefore, I tend to give advice that is distro- and DE-agnostic, which, while perhaps not the easiest way, will allow you to move freely between machines.

    The "Edimax" sounds great! Does anyone know how well it works with "Ubuntu 7.10?"

    Thanks!

    7.10 is nicknamed Gutsy Gibbon, and that's the one I installed it on originally. I moved my desk, so I now use a wired connection, but I believe it still works fine on Hardy (8.04).
