I know it's been almost a year, but now is the time to respond to my own

Since May I've been using a Tenda W322P V2.0 Wireless PCI Adapter in my
desktop. It's affordable, reliable, available from Micro Center, and comes
with the Linux driver source code on CD-ROM.

The latter is a good thing as it was not supported by the Ubuntu 10.04 or
12.04 kernel and every time there is/was a kernel update I had to
re-compile/re-link the driver - no big deal, it's just a make clean, make,
make install and reboot sequence.

However, the reason I decided to respond now is that it appears to be
supported by Kubuntu 14.04, or at least the beta version running from a
flash drive.


Be warned that although the web site claims there are 10+ available at the
Denver Tech Center store there were none to be found when I was in there a
few weeks ago. This morning I ordered 2 from the web site so we shall see.
