And actually, that Atheros pointer helped, I managed to find a wireless N PCI adapter with an Atheros chipset, and someone claiming that that model handled master mode with a tutorial. Win.

I will look into the USB cards, but I am really looking for PCI { not PCIe ( a PCI card might not exist, though. ) }

revised Why a 200 MB text file overloads 4gB ram
remove text about edit, as the edit history apparently did not carry over from stackoverflow.

comment Why a 200 MB text file overloads 4gB ram
And to answer the other part of your question, I really do not know why gedit uses that much memory -- may be partly due to bad programming, or a bug. I don't see any reason why it should. If you want the least memory intensive way to view a huge file, I think less is the only way to go, from my digging ( you can't edit it in that case, though )

gedit is the one using up high amounts of memory, not your own program, right?
