I've had very good luck using ndiswrapper (uses the windows driver on
Linux) with my laptop and a Broadcom BCM4306 chipset. As for my
Mythbox, I switced to an ethernet-802.11g bridge about a year ago after
having stability issues with the prism 802.11b linux drivers.
No matter which way you go, I wouldn't depend upon a wireless connection
for watching/recording video over a network. Some days, I have great
network performance, others, it's unwatchable. It does work very
reliably for music, pictures, mythweb, etc.
