    Does anyone know of any distros in linux that have WPA support built in. I found a page of linux drivers for my wireless card here. Or if theres no distros with linux support is there any guides that are simple to carry out avalible.

    Just about all distro's support wpa. You just need to find out what the name of the package is in the distro you're using. In Debian repositories it's know as wpasupplicant.

    If you're running Ubuntu the way you find these packages is to use "apt-cache search" and then add either part of all of the package name after search. So, "apt-cache search wpa" will find the package name for you. Then just apt-get install packagename" will install it and any dependencies.
