Hi all,

Anybody got any good reports of using 802.11g laptop PC cards with 5.X? I 
hear that the Dlink DWL-AG650 is supposed to work, as is anything else on an 
Atheros 5212 chipset, but I want to be sure before shelling out some 70 
notes on one. And yes, it does need to be g, and not a or b (although being 
able to support those as a fallback is a bonus).

Suggestions? Googling and the handbook are not being too great in this 
respect. Saying "a card with this chipset should work" is not the same as 
saying "if you buy THIS card from dabs, it will work, and works for me".

Pint of beer in this for somebody...
