Shop around but ensure :-
- Your chosen manufacturer has linux support. (IE
linux.manufacturer.com or www.manufacturer.com/linux
has relevant stuff on it.)
- Look at the manufacturer's forums for users
- Some models are certified for RHEL
- If you need to madwifi or ndiswrapper are open
source projects that provide drivers for wireless cards.
