Just thinking a bit more, you could make the Lists page a bit better and
"sort of" searchable by doing the following...
1) Put every successful card into its own page (I can see this idea
being really unpopular but bear with me), so you would have a netgear
wg311v2 page or a Belkin F5D6020 page or whatever... For each card you
have ONE top level page and then allow contributors to make there own
page under it or fill in details on that page
2) Make a Page with a list of manufacturers on, you could then link to
the pages in 1) by manufacturer
3) Make a Page with a list of pciids on, you could then link to the
pages in 1) by pciid
4) Make a Page with a list of chipsets on, you could then link to the
pages in 1) by chipset
And so on, I think you see what I'm getting at?
Furthermore, on each page in 1) you could provide a drivers link which
would contain links to drivers known to work for that card.
This would all take time but is totally possible with wiki, how does
that sound to others?
