Linux Wireless LAN Hardware Directory September 12, 2006

Posted by Ced in Info, Online, Search, Tech.

The Linux wireless LAN support website lets you search from an almost complete database of wireless devices that would give you its appropriate Linux compatibility.

This is an attempt to create a, more or less complete listing of wireless devices with information about the chipset they are based on and whether or not they are supported in Linux. … This list doesn’t specify anything about how much of your card is supported. So a card that only works without encryption is listed the same as one that also has support for WEP/WPA. For the specifics about how much of your card is supported, please refer to the driver page listed for your card. [linux-wless.passys.nl]

This would be a great resource if you are planning to take the Linux (and Wi-Fi) plunge sooner or later. Before purchasing a Wi-Fi card or dongle, it would be best to see if it would also be supported in Linux.

You can search by Manufacturer/Brand, Interface (PCI, USB, etc.), or chipset.
