LX'er have had a very pleasant experience with wireless network and Ubuntu.
Enjoy the beating of Windows here.
Recently, I bought a Linksys Wireless – B PCI adapter for one of my Linux boxes after consulting a compatibility list. Linksys changed the WMP11 chip in this revision and it just didn't work with my system. I started searching around on Google and discovered that some people got it to work using ndiswrapper.
But hey. So many people have dedicated themselves to making Linux a user-frriendly, advanced desktop that I thought you might like to see what our buddies over at Ubuntu and the gnome project have done. Afterall, it works and it's easy and friendly. So, enjoy! (y'all.)
