Default Suggestions on wireless-n card? - 02-25-2011, 07:09 PM

I've been googling and haven't found a straight answer. I'm looking to upgrade the wireless card in my mini 10v and was looking for one that would fit in the netbook, and work properly with OSX (running 10.6.6 right now) and maybe with linux (I'm dual booting). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Any Broadcom based card should work with OS X. It might be tricky to get it working in Linux, depending on the card.

An Apple card should work, but it will most likely cost more.

I've also read several threads saying the N cards get very hot, just so you know.
