Folks:

I have a Dell XPS Studio laptop with a broadcom wifi adapter built in. 
I've had no luck trying to compile in the BWI option into the kernel to
get it to work and think that buying a cheap usb WIFI adapter is the
quickest way to make wireless 802.11 b/g work.

Realizing that some chip sets are better supported than others, I was
hoping some list subscribers might be able to identify currently offered
USB WIFI adapters that they know to work.  I will then purchase one that
has a good track record.

Any suggestions/comments on adapters that work would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Bud
