I haven’t mentioned a pair of PCMCIA wireless network cards I brought home the other day, mostly because they were only slightly different from the ones I already have.
The reason I say they’re only slightly different is that the one uses the orinoco module, and the other is ath5k-driven. And considering I already have two cards with those guts, there haven’t been many surprises.
The Corega card however, is just as reliable and flexible as the Linksys card I own, and for that reason I consider it a worthy addition to my small collection.
And since both of them appeared in the store in their original boxes and with all their paraphernalia, I can hardly quibble at a price tag of around US$4 each. Thank goodness for cheap hobbies. :)
