Anybody know if there are drivers for any pcmcia wireless cards built in to FC2? I'm debating installing on my laptop. I need a new wifi card regardless, so whats a good one that'll work (without requiring a weekend and a bottle of advil;) :D )?

Thanks

There are drivers for the ipw2100 cards now, and the ipw2200 soon.

Check out ipw2100.sourceforge.net for more info.

Intel makes pcmcia cards? Or is this just a chipset? (trying to find one)

The Intel one are the new Centrino. Kinda pin to setup, but do work well after you get it.

My suggestion would to be find laptop you are interested in, and check out http://www.linux-laptop.net/ to see how well linux works on it.

hahaha I already have a laptop;) (averatec 3150H). I've heard FC2 installs fine onto it. It has built-in wireless, however it didn't work worth a damn under XP to begin with. I've been using a d-link pcmcia card (dwl650+), but that looks like a huge pain to install.

edit: I just looked and what's built in is a 802.11b Prism3 USB wlan.
