In my new occupation, I continue to
treat myself to new kit purchase essential new equipment for my business. I've already blogged on my experiences with printers on Linux and now I've started using a new wireless adapter I'd like to give that a shout-out too.
Like printers, I had mixed experiences of wireless adapters during my early days of Linux usage. But I'm happy to report that the first adapter I dropped for worked out of the box and like a charm. It is the Netgear N150, a fairly standard USB adapter that needed no installation and cost me a measly €15.
Incidentally, installing this same adapter under Windows 7 was awful. It was so unnecessarily convoluted and the configuration software is ugly and almost unusable. Linux users win on this one.
