Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a natively supported wireless NIC for a PC? I'm preferably looking for the following:

1. PCI card (not PCMCIA with adaptor)
2. 802.11g
3. Natively supported (does not require ndiswrapper)
4. Available in the UK

    It depends on which Linux distribution you are using.
    802.11g is quite new in Linux world. So you might need to have the latest kernel to have more wireless
    drivers built-in like Knoppix 3.8.1 (kernel 2.6.11)

    You can check this URL:
    where prim54 driver is in Knoppix 3.8.1.
