I am trying to get my Dell D600 laptop to connect wirelessly to my D-Link
WBR 1310 router.
Which card to buy and which Linux version is easiest to do this?
I know many of you are running your laptops with wireless connection so I
would like you to tell me what you use and what you did to make it all
happen. Any ideas or help will be appreciated much.
Anything with an Atheros or Orinoco chipset will work with Linux. Some
stuff can also be made to work using the Windows-native driver and
the /ndiswrapper/ kernel module, but I have no real experience with either
to know whether all Windows-oriented wireless chipsets can be made to work
As for what distribution, any recent enough distribution should perform well
enough. Mileage may and will vary. ;-)
Now all I have to do is find how to determine the chipset of the ones being
Good luck. They regularly change the chips without changing the model
number. If you're lucky they might change the version number.
BTW if you're open to a USB solution, look for one using the Zydas
zd1211 or zd1211b chipset. Kernels since about 2.6.20 or so have the
zd1211rw driver which works well. Airlink AWLL3026 is one.
