  • Shopping recommendation: miniPCI WLAN 802.11g

    Hello all,

    I'm looking our for a new miniPCI-Wifi-Adapter for my venerable IBM Thinkpad T40 (the CMOS is already patched to to allow for arbitrary adapters to be used). Right now, I'm using a RaLink RT2561/RT61-based device, but rx/tx-quality isn't as fine as I'd expected, i. e. never exceeding roughly 1MiB/s in either direction, regardless of connection quality.

    So here I'm standing know, scratching my head and pondering about the alternatives. I do want stable and fast rx/tx for 802.11g (with WPA2 encryption) and drivers integrated in the vanilla kernel. Options that I have in mind right now are:

    Intel 2200
    Intel 2915
    Broadcom BCM4318

    Can anyone please provide me with personal experience reports with these chipsets involved?

    Thanks in advance, cheers!

    Da muss man nichts mehr dazu sagen ;-)
    Intel hardware support in Linux is currently unmatched IMO.
