I am traveling to the US starting early next week and the hotel the company 
has booked me into seems to only offer wireless internet access. The Dell 
c640 I have (company supplied dual booting between company Windows image and 
PRO SUSE 9.1 image) was never equipped with the wireless card. 

So, rather then pony up the costs to rent a NIC daily, which may not work in 
linux, I am looking to grab one quickly before I head south. Advantage of 
this would be I could then use it @ home on my wireless network as well when 
I get back....

So, does anyone have any good suggestions for inexpensive (<$60) wireless NICs 
that are "garenteed" to run on this system?


PS, thanks for the input for a first time poster.
