> anyone here done anything with wireless ethernet?
The Lucent WaveLAN/IEEE 802.11b cards are supported under Linux (I
originally got the drivers from source, but I think they're in the
latest pcmcia-cs packages), and they work very well. Cards are around
200 quid, and the base station is around 1,600. Shop around.
The 3Com AirConnect cards are *not* yet supported by Linux, but the
3Com base station works happily with the Lucent 'Silver' and 'Gold'
