Re: Does WLAN Client Adapter under Linux exist?

The chipset used in the Cisco CB21ag is generally suported in Linux as "Atheros Chipset."

Most of the current Linux distributions since the 2.4 (maybe earlier) kernel should be able to see it, at least as an 802.11g NIC.

If your distribution doesn't directly support it, check out the following link:

and / or Google "Linux Wireless"

Good Luck

USe the MAdWifi Drivers for your card go to madwifi.org and follow the newbie instructions. your card is atheros chipset and will work beautifully in linux even better than windows xp with WEP, WPA and high speed access.

This is one of the best cards for linux
