Default wifi for linux?

ok, so my little brother annoys the shit out of me by plaing mother f*cking runescape.

all f*cking day.

so i was thinking, just thinking, new comp just for runescape.

?

so i went to newegg and am looking at nice parts.

benq cd burner.
15 dollar case, looks better than the one i got now.
sunbeam 450watt psu.
WD 40gb ide.
artic silver 5
256ram
celeron d 2.13ghz
PC CHIPS P25G (V3.0) mobo
logitech interent pro keyboard
and some 5 dollar crap-o mouse.

k, not bad for internet and runescape.

and not bad for 250 dollars... (holy crap, 40 dollar shipping, rip off)

then there is a problem. getting internet, i have a dlink router, getting a wire up to my bro's room would be really hard.

wifi...expensive, ya, but it could work.

that is cool, but idk, would a wifi card work with linux?

i am thinking ubuntu, i hear that is the best.

i see these usb and pci slot adapters but they all have a cd to install them with, and those cd's are for xp i would assume not linux.

the reason i choose linux is cuz it is free. and because i hear linux can use the best of a slow system, for instance if i got 100 dollar xp on here...well that would be one of the slowest comp's alive. my friend has a 98 disk, he would lend me, i hear u can install 98 as many times as u want and it will go for u....but idk, linux looks sweet!

so is it possible to get a wifi setup on linux?

A quick search on Google turned this up. Seems like it is very possible and here's a how-to guide to do it. I would read it carefully before purchasing anything, though.
