NT and 802.11

By computerchick ·
Does anyone know of a wireless NIC that does not use CardBus? In other words, can NT go wireless? If so, how?

Thanks in advance..........

Use a USB Wireless NIC - NT support for USB was impossible early on, but this is no longer the case. Many USB devices run on NT presently.

Thanks, but the answer is that it requires a card that will work with NT's PC Card 2.1 specs - thre are several vendors that make them. I also have to create a separate hardware profile so the user can choose which NIC to enable (there is already a10/100 LAN card installed). A bit cumbersome to create, but pretty slick when it's all said and done.
