I mentioned on here the other day the Zytel AG-225H adaptor - use
Gossamer's advanced search for my posts - which does 802.11a, which
should be available readily & which seems to have drivers now
available. It has a very small LCD display and "hotspot finder" built-
in (it is a very little larger than a regular USB NIC) but there are
likely other devices using the same chipset that are cheaper & which
lack this feature. If you want the AG-225H adaptor & can't find it
locally then let me know off-list & I may be able to ship to you - I
was given mine as a freebie by a local networking e-tailer.
