Howdy all,
I figured this would be a good place to get this question answered, Im currently building a desktop exclusively for Linux which I will use at home. My problem is that I need to use a wireless card to connect to the network because the router is downstairs and my room upstairs. I was wondering what would be the best desktop (PCI or USB) wireless adapter to use that would give me the least amount of problems to compile or grab drivers for. Or in other words I need an adapter that a novice Linux user like myself could use.
