Hot off the presses, get it while it's hot!

"For the harassed, overworked network admin, connecting new clients without 
having to run additional cabling is so much fun it feels wrong. Miles of 
pretty color-coded cables and tags are aesthetically pleasing and useful, of 
course, and who hasn't experienced the satisfaction of crimping connectors? 
There's nothing like the authoritative SNICK of a perfect crimp. (For some of 
us deskbound-geeks, grip strength is all we have.)

"But rasslin' bales of CAT5 cables is like, so last millennium. Hopelessly 
old-fashioned. Square, even. And wireless Ethernet is no longer new-fangled: 
it's affordable and works just fine. Today let's take a look at which brands 
and devices work on Linux; next week we'll dig into the deep, mysterious 
world of chipsets, configurations, and troubleshooting."
