    As far as I could find only some Atheros.
    Would there be a way to compile drivers for Ralink and Realtek chipsets?

    I plan to use a 266mmx 96mb ram laptop with 3xusb wifi + usb ethernet adapter as a multi-wan gateway.
    zeroshell seems like a perfect match for it..if it supported different USB wifi chipsets.

    If not could you recommend another low resource linux based routing distribution.

    Thanks!

    Do a search here in the forum and you can find some threads how to compile new drivers.
    The machine is a bit old, don’t know if it will be able to manage all this traffic along with firewall and QoS rules. Also I don’t think that the usb on such an old machine is 2.0, so you will have to settle with a data rate of 12Mbps.
