    I am using the Fedora core 9 as my OS. Now the thing is i am plannning to get a WLAN connectivity for myself. Which would be better
    1. PCI based WLAN card
    2. USB based WLAN dongle

    if i go for the USB based solution then how exactly do i configure this on my system.

    PCI if possible, preferrably something with an open-source driver (e.g. atheros). USB would work OK, but it's not exactly the optimal buss for networking. The installation process is the same provided the chipset is supported.
