Looking for industrial 802.11 wireless adapter

Started by Aleksandr Baranov April 10, 2005
Hello,
I'm looking for 802.11 adapter for a single board computer to make it
attachable to wireless network. The adapter has to connect withs SBC through
Ethernet connection.
I have been using Linksys WAP11 before but they had proved to be unreliable
and a special guy had to go  and occasionally reboot them through switching
power off/on.. I tried to migrate to Netgear but it seems not to have any
adapters except that with USB and PCI. Netgearr access points cannot work as
clients.
Google steers to the same "Linksys", "Belkin" etc
Can you advice something  reliable and industrial?
Thanks, Alex.

I once used a thing called "client bridge" to connect a SBC to a network. It was a CB1000 from Symbol. http://www.symbol.com/products/wireless/cb1000.html Not very cheap, though :-( Works quite neatly, and the SBC only needs a standard LAN interface.
