I recently bought several wireless devices, everything made by Linksys I
ended up returning because it was just plain broken, at first I had
blamed this on hte linux drivers but the performance was even worse in
I ended up settling on a Netgear MA401 PCMCIA card and a Netgear MR314
wireless router (which is a nice folded steal box, not the crappy
plastic molding of its counterparts). I have no real strong feelings
either way on the netgear stuff, it works and it works well. However I
feel very strongly about the linksys stuff, it just plain sucks and I
tell that to anyone I see buying it in stores.
