    I want to use Linux on a regular basis now that I have dedicated machine for it, but my problem is I have no supported wireless network adapter for it. I'm using a Qwest 2Wire USB something-or-other, and all I know is that it isn't and probably never will be be compatible. If anyone here uses Linux on a wireless network, what adapter are you using? (I'm going to be using Ubuntu, if that sways suggestions.)

    [Edit] A stray thought: It would be nice if I could find a USB network adapter. I know they have them for Linux, I just don't know any decent ones by name. Oy...

    You might want to look into ndiswrapper. It's a program that can wrap some (most?) Windows network device drivers and allow Linux to use them.

    OMG, that's awesome! Thanks for the heads up, man. I'm going to try that out now and see what happens.
