Re: [linux-dell-laptops] miniPCI WiFi recommendations
- I'm not sure about the 11g, but Orinoco based cards work well. (Dell should
be able to tell you which of theirs is based on it) The miniPCI card I use
in my Dell Lat. C640 is one such animal.

- I can't say for MiniPCI (I'm still patiently waiting/watching Intel's
progress for my 2200 BG MiniPCI card), but Madwifi does cover my D-Link
DWL-G650 (Atheros) PCCard quite nicely in full open source. I do get
54/108 (super G) support.

means you can't connect to a network using shared key WEP, so I just had to
buy a prism 2 based pcmcia card to replace the Orinoco in my gfs laptop. (of
course if you don't want to connect to a shared key WEP network then this
wouldn't be a problem) If you only wanted 802.11b then the intel mini-pci as
supplied with many dell laptops work well enough with the GPL drivers from

- Anyone know of a Blue802 minipci that will work with the Inspirons?
I've read that they're not widely avilable because cheap adaptors
abound, but i'd really like to have it all licked away in the case
instead of carrying around USB adaptors.
