There are many wifi cards that require some tweaking to make them work as well as some cards that work right out of the box. In this forum there's lot of information about specific models, but it's distributed in different threads and different sections.
It would be nice if every user could share their experience with his/her wi-fi card. I mean, what card are you using? did it work out of the box? did you need to install another package? maybe needed some tweaking?
That could help someone with the same card or willing to buy a new one but is not sure about the compatibility with the current distribution.
Also for cards that work out of the box... I also found that is some outdated information in some threads. By instance, the Sandisk ConnectPlus (128MB) Card is said to work one_feature_at_a_time in most threads, but I saw in a config file (when I just installed pdaxrom if my memory doesn't fail) that it was bind to two modules, in a fashion much like:
bind "hostap_cs" to 0
bind "ide" to 1
Does that mean that with the default package it would work both functions at a time?
Any experience with wifi cards of any model is welcomed.
I'll post mine as soon as I get a wi-fi card in a better shape than my screwed-up dlink 660w that is not even recognized on wince devices some times (so I can't blame linux for not recognizing it, I need to make tests with a REAL and PROPERLY WORKING wifi card).
