Wireless-N USB or PCMCIA adapters that works?

mfillpot Posts: 2,177

I have a friend that is really wanting to get running with Ubuntu 9.04 (preferably 64-bit edition), however his built in wireless card is horribly unstable and I have been unable to get it working with ndiswrapper or by any other means.

He has been asking about getting a Wireless-N adapter to replace his onboard card and I would like your recommendations for a good wireless-N usb or pcmcia adapter that works out of the box in Ubuntu 9.04.

Thank you all in advance, you input and recommendations are appreciated.

    Look here for supported cards. And please feel free to update the page if necessary.

    I agree with you, never change a good system unless you have to.
    I am also using Ubuntu 9.10 and I was tempted to keep the menu.lst but I backed it up instead just b4 I upgraded to 9.10. It's working fine on my PC, I had sound, screen resolution problems after the installation. I reported the issue to Ubuntu support and I was connected to https://launchpad.net/ and the nex thing I know after a reboot everything is working fine.
