Internet & Networking BSD and Linux programmers have had a lot of success in creating drivers for new computer hardware in a timely manner, but much of their effort has been without the support of major hardware manufacturers. Intel, Marvell, Texas Instruments and Broadcom, though separate and competing entities, seem by one consent to prevent non-Microsoft operating systems from working properly with some of their most widely-used network chips.

I just picked the atheros chipset and went to the manufacturers website and got a list of products that use a atheros chipset.Piece a cake,i bought a D-link DWL-G520 wireless PCI card.Works out of the box so to speak with most distros,otherwise a little extra configuration is needed.
