Wouldn't it be worthwhile for the steering committee to
to make it part of the desktop guide (perhaps as a shorter "technical
note" as I proposed some days ago). Wireless networking is a often
discussed problem. Maybe someone should add a chapter about handling
cards which are not enclosed in the distribution.
This is a good article, unfortunately licensed through CC BY-NC-SA, but
perhaps the author will dual-license it. You don't need the steering
committee to do this, though; feel free to write the gentleman in
question and ask whether he would license a copy under the FDL so we
could include it.
What I wonder on a technical level, though, is why more people aren't
encouraging the use of NetworkManager, which is a truly great new system
for managing connections. I don't turn any of my interfaces on at boot
time, which means booting is really quite fast when I'm on wireless.
When I move my box around the network configuration changes on the fly,
whether I plug it in or unplug it.
