Never use ndiswrapper, if there is any chance to get wifi running with a
real linux driver. ndiswrapper is no solution, it is a workaround, which
may help, if nothing else works. Best is, you check your hardware for
compatibility before you buy.

Exactly. When shopping, you have to ensure that everything works with linux, and that is not always easy to find out before you buy :-(

A similar experience of mine...this school's got a funny CISCO (!) firewall. That works fast and fine with winboxes behind it. But with Linux boxes behind it, it comes to a crawl..

Support from the Cisco dealer: "Eh, we don't support Linux..., but I think it's a known issue..."

Clearly it's an implementation bug in the CISCO box, no matter what you do to the Linux box (IP6 on/off etc), it does make no difference. Then...you setup another firewall - and Linux (and windows) flies both.

Am I going to recommend/buy CISCO gear next time, I'll give you one guess at that one :-)
