Welcome to the future

I am posting this wirelessly on a newly-Ubuntu'd laptop. Spent the entire weekend trying to make a USB wireless dongle I bought at Fry's work in Debian, including muc h use of ndiswrapper et al.

Finally said to hell with it and installed Ubuntu. Works about the same as Debian, except I was able to get the FR-300 USB installed and working in about 4 hours.

There is a reason that my wireless key is a very complex phrase of profanity.

I don't supppose you'd want to share anything about how you got your wireless dongle to work under Ubuntu, would you?

Let me pull up the interface again and see. It was pretty easy once I installed, uh, maybe wifi-radar and ndiswrapper.
