I recently purchased an ASUS Eee laptop and am now considering an USB Air card. I really need to get some info based on my situation as to whether to go this route.
Info, I live in an area without DSL service - probably years before that happens! So, in looking at various options to get away from dial-up - I am looking at satellite, cellular, or wi-fi. Right now it seems that celluar may be the best option, faster then dialup , frees a land line, and potentially can be used on my laptop and desktop. Now, my question that I need answered before making the plunge!
My laptop is an ASUS Eee, (does not have a PC card slot), so I guess the USB Card is what I need. Will the 881 work with the Xanthos Linux OS? And will I be able to use it on my Dell, XP desktop at home as well?
Your gonna have a hard time getting it up and running... if anything you might have to extract the drivers from a windows pc... and then what you can try and do is using it in linux... majority of the time it works... you might need ndiswrapper... and if anything you might need to reopen the driver files themself and rewrite themm... thats gonna be a stretch...
