I am getting ready to install Linux on a laptop that does not currently have any WiFi. I am looking for a WiFi PC card that has real Linux drivers. Any suggestions?

Hi Tyler5690,

I have PCLinuxOS installed on my Acer Aspire 5000. The on board Broadcom Required me to set up a NDISwrapper and I still had trouble getting it to work. I have a Ralink card that just works. Ralink has native Linux support (drivers are available if not installed)

Here is one from a vendor I've used for years.
