Clearwire, compatiable with Ubuntu?

I have Clearwire here and it works quite well with Ubuntu. Clearwire on a
desktop is a flat-looking box somewhat similar to a cable modem that plugs into
a power outlet and into the computer's ethernet port. It supports DHCP so that
the computer will get an IP address using a standard protocol. This means that
it is in fact compatible with any OS that attempts to use the ethernet port to
access the internet and obtain an IP address via DHCP, which is just about all
of them. A laptop with a Clearwire PC card is the only thing that may be
problematic for Ubuntu users, since Clearwire claims that the PC card only works
on Windows-based laptops. That, however, just like so many other things, may not
actually be a problem, since so many things run on Linux but apparently want the
general public to think otherwise.
