Re: [NTLK] Deciding between wireless or ethernet card with dongle

Ether + dongle is just easier. The wifi driver only works with 40-bit
encryption in my experience, which is better than none, but easy
enough to get around. It's also fiddly…not that the Newt's DHCP isn't
fiddly to begin with. Some wireless joints require you to sign in on
a SSL-encrypted page - won't work with a Newt. Some play fancy
javascript games - again, won't work. Generic "linksys" or "netgear"
APs will work just fine, of course.
