Does anyone know of any 802.11b or 802.11g (not bothered, g prefferable) wireless USB adaptors that will work under both OS X and Gentoo Linux? The Airport Extreme apparently doesn't work under Linux due to Broadcom protecting their trade secrets in their Wireless chipsets, wireless chipsets are pretty hard to create I've heard :roll:

I think I'm right in thinking a 12" ibook doesn't have a PC Slot so I think USB is the only way to get Linux wireless.

Thankyou, DWL-122 it is, and only £20GBP or so you can't really complain that its only 11b! Frankly 11b is more than enough for browsing the internet, I'll just plug into my hub for large file transfers.
