Is anyone using a (currently available) 802.11b PCI (not PCMCIA) card
with Linux?  What card?  What driver do you use?

* I'm particularly interested in cards that work with a driver that
  ships with a standard (2.6) kernel.

* If you're aware of incompatible chipset variations within the model
  that works for you, please let me know.  :-)

* One of those guys at a computer fair claimed the D-Link DWL-520
  worked with Linux (and I've heard the DWL-520+ doesn't - completely
  different chip-set apparently).  It was about $90.

I'm just looking to by a PCI wireless card and don't want to waste too
much time.  I just want it to work...  :-)


peace & happiness,
