Re: Fedora Core 2 Wireless Card

If you're using DTN, the easiest thing to do would be to get their
wireless router.  They'll even refund the cost of the card and antenna
cable once returned if you change from the Cisco card.  Then any $15 NIC
that works with Linux will work.

Doing some digging around on my FC2 system, here is a list of wireless
airo_cs.ko   atmel_pci.ko   orinoco.ko      prism54
airo.ko      hermes.ko      orinoco_pci.ko  wavelan_cs.ko
atmel_cs.ko  netwave_cs.ko  orinoco_plx.ko  wavelan.ko
atmel.ko     orinoco_cs.ko  orinoco_tmd.ko  wl3501_cs.ko

And, here is a list of cards that I assume are supported by the prism54
module (from strings prism54.ko):
3COM 3CRWE154G72 Wireless LAN adapter
D-Link Air Plus Xtreme G A1 - DWL-g650 A1
I-O Data WN-G54/CB - WN-G54/CB
Netgear WG511
EZ Connect g 2.4GHz 54 Mbps Wireless PCI Card - SMC2802W
EZ Connect g 2.4GHz 54 Mbps Wireless Cardbus Adapter - SMC2835W
SparkLAN WL-850F
I4 Z-Com XG-600
SMC 2802Wv2
SMC 2835Wv2
Intersil PRISM Indigo Wireless LAN adapter
Intersil PRISM Duette/Prism GT Wireless LAN adapter
PRISM Indigo
D-Link DWL-g650 A1
SMC2835W V2
3COM 3CRWE154G72
SMC2802W V2

I hope this helps.
