I'm looking to buy a wireless USB adapter that I can
plug into a Fedora 8 box. The main feature I want it
to be able to stick it in and have it just work. No
custom kernel compiles. If it had 802.11n that would
be a plus.
So - what "just works" with Linux?
Thanks in advance.

I use this Belkin one which has a RaLink chipset -
It is not .11n but I never had any problems with Fedora 8 or Ubuntu 7.10 -
well apart from fiddling with module blacklists that is. (This card is
claimed by two drivers in the kernel and the one that gets loaded does not
work - so I have to blacklist it.) But apart from that it just works -
even with NetWorkManager.
Recently I was hunting for a .11n USB card that works with Linux without
the ndiswrapper crap but wasn't able to find one.
You want to make sure though that you get the Ralink chipset with the card
revision you buy - similarly named different version cards having totally
different chipsets is not considered weird in that world.
