Please note that any card chipsets and specs posted here could change without notice 🙁 we will try and keep it upto date tho.
hermes chipset pcmcia card
good linux support
external antenna (lucent connector)
not as many options as a prism based device (perfect for client use tho)
laptops, multia (or other desktop with pcmcia bridge) based clients
Prism 2.5-based PCI card with rp-sma antenna connector.
- Reasonably cheap
- Good linux support
- Easily available pigtails
- PCI (well it’s a con if you have a laptop; Netgear’s pcmcia doesn’t have an external antenna socket)
- Cable runs from back of card to external antenna
- Hostap based repeating nodes
I’ve just got a wireless USB box – I’ll post the info here as soon as I can get to it (it’s at work)….has anyone any experience of getting this sort of thing to work under Linux and, if so, which distro?
More info soon.
Forums seem to be up and running ok now. I hope to move them over to the forums.bristolwireless.net name soon, but until then they will stay here. 🙂
