   Has anyone practical experience with USB WiFi 'thumbs'? I see that newegg
has one available, but all the reviews are by Winduhs users.

   Do these have more powerful radios than the PCMCIA card adapters? Might
they work when the pcmcia card sees access points, but dhcpcd doesn't return
an IP address? What linux drivers are needed?
