Linux Wireless LAN support - Complete Listing

April 06, 2006
With the growing trend of computers going wireless and the proliferation of WiFi hotspots in major cities, there is a need to know which wireless LAN card has support for GNU/Linux while buying a PC or a laptop. Linux does have drivers for wireless LAN cards. But not all wireless cards are supported in Linux.

H.J Heins has compiled a database of all the wireless LAN cards in the market with details of how much support you can hope to get for it to work in Linux. You can browse the entire collection or a subset of it depending on the manufacture, the interface or chipset used. Just make sure that you choose a card with the green label as those are the ones which have native Linux drivers available.
