Re: Ralph

 Yeah, it's a shame. I know this is complicated but Ubuntu was making a
real dent in the commercials sector (as far as getting laptops that
could install it and magazines reviewing Ubuntu).  But this WiFi thing
is a deal killer.  I tried Hardy again and went the fwcutter route. And
I did indeed get wireless to work. But it was horribly slow. It kept
wanting to connect at 1Mb and there was a huge latency as well as
dropping.

 So NDISwrapper is the only solution for my wireless card.  And it's not
like I picked an Uncle Bob's made it in his back room wireless card.
It's a name brand and found at a big brand store.  I tried to look for
an EXACT recommendation for a new wireless card known to work out of the
box "as is" with Hardy (no ndiswrapper, no fwcutter) but the best I
could find was general chipsets to look for.  Strangely enough, on
buy.com I cannot search on chipsets.

 So I'm willing to chuck the linksys and get another "G" card (PCI
desktop).  Can anyone give me an EXACT brand and model of card that is
known 100% to work in Hardy stock?
