    Dear all:



    I¡¦m plain to deploy wireless network environment in our company. As I know
    that some IP Sharing include wireless function, but I don¡¦t like that.
    Because I need RADIUS in my company, but most of those IP Sharing maybe have
    RADIUS, but can¡¦t compare with my Windows Server, such as Windows
    2000/2003.



    So I plain the use PCI interface wireless card on my Windows server, or use
    USB interface wireless card on my Windows server. But I don¡¦t know which
    one is better, and which one can work?



    Many thanks for your reply!

    Depends on the acutual card it self. Not weather it is pci or usb. SMC
    makes a great high powerd wireless card. Best card I have ever used.
    Here is the model number "SMC2536W-AG"

    Sorry the last model number was for the cardbus model (laptop). Here is
    the model for the pci version SMC2512W-AG

  4. USB is historically more trouble. It should be the last choice for anything
    of this nature. USB is fine for mice, joysticks, and your digital
    camera,...but i dont' trust it for much else.

    Dear Josh:

    Did SMC2512W-AG works with Microsoft RADIUS service?

    Many thanks for your reply!
