Odhiambo, please don't CC me. I don't need multiple copies of the same
post.

If you look carefully at that list, which by the way I have done
previously, their are scant few "802.11n" wireless cards listed. The
few that might work appear to be lower end units. I have Linksys
WMP300N units installed in my older PCs. The newer units will have the
Linksys WMP600N installed. They are not listed on the URL listed above.
At least one of my Laptops has a Intel Centrino Wireless-N1030, 1x2 bgn
(2.4GHz) + Bluetooth device installed. I am not even sure if that is
supported, although at the present time I don't require it since it
runs Windows-7.
