Anyone tried the Airlink MIMO routers and cards available
at Fry's for $30 and $20 yet? (today's adverts).
Obviously the router/AP would work, but I'm wondering what the
chipsets are and what the chipsets in the cards are and what
the Linux support is.
Did a quick google search but didn't find anything by brand.
But that's not surprising- it's the chipset that counts and
the Fry's ads don't mention that (surprise, surprise).
Airlinks have been a good bargain for me in the past (worked
well enough and cheap). Looks like the sale's good till
Tues, so I may check them out. Price looks worth the drive.
Anyone know if the higher-speed cards (802.11g and MIMO) do
better in the latency department than the old ones did (ssh
over early 802.11b chipsets was painful).
Tempted by the 60GB mp3/mpeg4 player too- I shouldn't. ;-)
