Thread: Wi-Fi PCI Card

  1. #1

    Wi-Fi PCI Card

    Hello,

    I found a place to stay in the east bay. I found a really nice place in Dublin. I get all utilites and rent for one fee. The house has wireless network. So I need a PCI Wi-Fi card. What is a good card that I can possibly attach an external antenna in the future? That is easily configurable in linux. I think I might get into building antennas and that kind of thing.

    TIA
    P.S. Thanks again trickster for that link.

    Netgear wg311t worked out of the box. I can configure it but I am yet to find a scanner. I *think* airsnort dose this. But I am not sure if it only cracks weps.

    Netgear make several versions of WG311s (bustards) without changing its version number but only the chipsets (AFAIK). I don't know about PCI stuff but my WG511 is a piece of junk and I'm having a hell of a hard time trying to find someone to switch the card who uses only Windozs.

    Or may be I should just get another PC card since the prices have fallen sharply. :-\

    I got mine on overstock for around $28 with everything. Works fine.
