couldn't live without my wireless net! every day, I go home and sit in
the garden with my laptop for a bit. It's also handy to be able to work
wherever I want (even sending email from teh toilet if need be ;) ).
I use Netgear cards (they're all that were available locally). For the
laptop's card, I needed to use ndiswrapper to run the windows driver,
but for the mini-itx, there was a Linux driver available.
