USB Wireless

Can anyone recommend a USB 802.11b client that has drivers for Linux ?
Alternatively, a client that can be wired into the RJ45 connector
would do (in some ways that would be better).

My latest toy has all sorts of onboard bits and pieces, but not PCI or
PC Card sockets, so it's a little constrained in terms of
expandability !

There seem to be plenty of hubs that answer this description, but not
many clients - or am I just looking in the wrong place ?

Thanks,

Dave.

You might like to take a look at the web site:

           http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/

This might provide you with some valuable information, although I am not aware
of too many USB wireless devices which are currently supported by the Linux
kernel.

See ya
