I am, and was, referring to the EEE PC. The early versions all used the AR5007EG, which is what led to my mentioning it in my article on the AR5007EG card. I know that at least some of the 900 series, the latest ones, use a Realtek card. There's a thread on Fedora forums about it somewhere. > - Eee Box has an R8111b rev2 chipset for wired connections and ..

For some reason, most laptop distributors feel that wireless b/g or b/g/n counts as a "detailed specification." For we who don't use MS systems, it's quite aggravating--I'm fortunate enough (as far as that goes anyway) to live in NYC, where I can usually go to a flagship BestBuy or whatever and actually look at a machine. > As a sidenote, none of the items related to Eee Box seem to have > anything in common with Scott's tutorial, as he has just pointed out. Yes, but it gave me a chance to personally thank you for your work on the Realtek cards, so I'm not complaining. :) -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Giles: Nothing left but skin and cartilage.
