    One they are not using anymore? Figured here would work better than anywhere else. Only really wanna pay about 40 bucks for a single port wireless bridge, 802.11 b is fine.
    Figured it's the solution to my Linux woes, being a total noob at linux, only able to install it and then can't get online because I don't have wireless nic drivers. With a wireless bridge, I don't need wireless nic drivers, only a nic. Linux picks up my nic just fine. :)

    What wireless card do you have? I have yet to see one that actually doesn't work at all under Linux.

    I don't know how/ or where/ to get drivers. It doesn't work out of the box (distribution) I don't wanna fuck with it. I don't know enough about it and I fucking hate shutting down, rebooting, booting into windows, then shutting down, booting into linux, like 500 times :mamoru:

    I know jack squat about linux. I have one computer. My wireless nic sucks anyway, look at other thread "MY wireless connection sucks"

    :dunno: Two birds with one stone.

    Since I don't know much about linux, I'd have to boot out of linux and into windows every time I wanted to learn to try something else. Right now I don't have the patience to do that. If I'm going to use linux I need access to the net. Or else It's useless, as I own no manuals or documentation on how to use linux and rely on the net for this material

    and besides, there's multiple ways to do things. You get a flat, you have a hard time using the OEM jack, yes? When a 30 dollar floor jack from the hardware store is SO much easier to use.
    That's throwing money at car problems isn't it? :rolleyes:
