use NLD ;)

You can emutale the drivers or look for the Linux drivers for them. I used to have a page bookmarked linking to a lot of Linux WLAN drivers. . . although rather bussy now ;)

Well if i remember correctly... the NDIS Wrapper works far from perfect. I used it on my notebook once to emulate a Broadcom Wlan adapter and it was slow as... (Remember that big ass notebook i had before this one Gryphon?)

Don't know if there are any improvements to that offcourse...

On the other hand. Most (new) el-cheapo network cards use a prism or atmel chipset which are recognised correctly in Linux...
