» Bought myself 2 WLAN NICs that actually work on Linux

What is it with the WLAN NIC manufacturers ? Why are they changing their chipsets every few weeks, even shipping exactly the same product but with very different chipsets ? That's especially annoying as less and less chipsets are working on Linux. Prism and Prism2 were working well, but those tend to become quite rare. In the end, I was fed up with ndiswrapper and bought myself 2 wireless NICs that really work on Linux, from Conceptronics (huh? no, never heard of them before either) and they include the ralink chipset. There are native Linux drivers included with every (very) recent distribution: rt2500. And the driver is even GPL. And they are working really well. What do we want more ? ;) Note that the rt2500 driver is included in SUSE Linux 9.3 and 10.0, but not in 9.2. I'd also like to warmly recommend this very nice hardware shop: If you're living in Germany, consider buying your hardware over there, as they are exclusively supporting Linux and only sell stuff that actually works on our favourite operating system. Yay! I've been looking for a shop like that for quite some time ;)
