I have an SMC USB WLAN adapter that, according to my resarch on ndiswrapper, should work. I haven't tried it yet (though I hope the experience is less painful than setting up resolution settings for my MacMini's integrated Intel graphics card)

The reason I have not tried it is because I saw here, that someone has created reverse-engineered drivers for the Broadcom chip. This would allow for my Airport Extreme card to work with Linux. That would be cool.

The link above says that the Broadcom driver "was included into the Linux kernel since 2.6.17-rc2".

I have FC6 and my kernel version is 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6.

So, if I have a more recent kernel, where is the driver and how do I make it recognize the Airport card?

If using the Airport card in Linux is not feasible, have you guys had success with ndiswrapper?
