Anyone know of a PCMCIA network card that is compatible with Unix?
BSD? Which one [OpenBSD/FreeBSD/NetBSD]?
OS X? FreeBSD variant after all...
Solaris? IRIX? HP-UX? or... THE Unix from S da matha fackin CO?
I think the best way to go is to check out the supported hardware list for a specific vendor.
Never found an Intel that wasn't supported
There are a bunch of d-link card that have the Atheros chipset, and if I'm not mistaken that is supported on many different *nixes but that's just wireless. Other than that never had a problem with intel cards
pcmcia or cardbus? I assume you mean cardbus. Wired or wireless? Ethernet? Fiber? Copper? etc?
sorry for the lack of info i was in a rush. UNIX SCO 5.0.6. is installed on a laptop that has no NIC, i need an RJ45 NIC (not wireless) that is compatible.
sco on a laptop - cool
intel based would be my first guess. my d-link wireless works great on freebsd
cool? .... meh
It's kind of out of necessity, we got stuck with 2 bike shows on the same week and the shuttle server is with one salesman and we don't have another one and obviously everything has to be done last minute
We can run our software straight off the laptop over SCO but the big boss wants at least 2 PC's there just for the "show".
Something 3com based is usually a good bet for support, especially the older stuff (older cards will generally be more likely to have drivers, since there's been more time for people to write the drivers).
