Better Wi-Fi on the Linux Horizon

,----[ Quote ]
| Wireless networking on Linux is entering a new era. An era of bliss
| and ease; where users and network administrators have abundant time
| for relaxing lie-abouts on sunny warm hills because their wireless
| systems are humming along contentedly, instead of being vexing
| and unreliable.

Belkin's WiFi hub unhooks your USB

,----[ Quote ]
| It may look like Belkin's Darth Vader answer to the Apple TV, but
| this unassuming slab is in fact a WiFi-enabled USB hub. In effect
| a tiny system running embedded Linux, it has five USB 2.0 ports
| that communicate with any PC on a network via 802.11n - devices
| plugged in show up as if they?re connected directly to the PC itself.

| For years, Linux has had a reputation of being notoriously bad for
| wireless access, whether through access points, ad-hoc, whatever.
| But the new KWirelessNetwork applet thats included in the new
| Kubuntu beta is just incredible.

Beef Up Your Wireless Router

,----[ Quote ]
| So what can you do with an embedded Linux device running on limited
| RAM and very small storage? As it turns out, quite a lot actually.
| You can install asterisk, and have your personal, customizable PBX
| (private branch exchange). If you already have a SIP phone or some
| kind of VoIP phone interface (such as the Cisco ATA 186 adapter),
| you can have your very own VoIP system at home, all running out of
| your low power-consumption embedded hardware.

|
| This is just the beginning of what embedded Linux can do for you.
| To find out more what embedded Linux can do for your enterprise,
| check out Secure Linux Appliances in Your Enterprise. So dig u
| your old wireless router, check it against the hardware compatibility
| list, and see if your router is OpenWRT compatible, and open yourself
| up to a wrt of possibilities!
