Does anyone know where I can find an Ubuntu compatible wireless usb adapter? Answered

To be more specific, does anyone know where I can get a cheap, compact, wireless usb adapter that is bundled with drivers for Ubuntu and maybe even Windows too? A link would be great! Thanks! -Shadow Ops

you seem good at batch, could you open the driver in windows and convert it somehow? (i mean, convert to a linux script?(.sh?))

It is not just that simple, at least as far as I know. I think I might be able to use windows drivers using wine, but again, I'm not fully sure.

hmmm, i would look on Newegg.com , they have a wpn111 for 10$ and 6$ shipping ....in order to make it work you have to use ndiswrapper, (just extract the windows driver and find the ndis folder) and then use the .info file (this will involve use of the terminal, but its not too hard...) and then tell ndiswrapper to use that .info for the specific usb/pcmcia card.. (its best to unplug al usb/pcmica cards) ...you can find better tutorials then what i just put here on ubuntu forums...its actually kinda funny that you ask though as im trying to set up mine... here's the wpn111 and here is the ubuntu forums and here is a quick google on ubuntu for the card i suggested

Is there any that work on Ubuntu and Windows right out of the box? If not, is there any that just work with Ubuntu out of the box?

look around teh intatwebs for some how to crack WEP on linux, they usually talk about some wifi cards that are easily linux configurable and almost always windows 'patible...how comforable are you with using konsole?
