    Default A Website To Check Wireless Lan Support!

    Found about this website in vector linux site, you can check before you buy if the wireless adapter works with linux or not, so I think is a good tool to check wireless adapters by manufacturer, interface or chipset, it even have links to the drivers websites, I hope it helps somebody:

    The problem with such websites/lists is that some idiotic manufacturers change
    the internal chip without changing the model/version information. As a result,
    one does not know if a driver is available until you are able to do an 'lspci
    -nn' of an 'lsusb' command.
