Sad wvlan_cs vs wavelan2_cs

  Hi,

  As I explain in my howto, each Wavelan IEEE driver has
its strength and its weakness...

  Wireless Extensions are far more advanced in wvlan_cs,
and I know that many neat WE features are not implemented in
wavelan2_cs. It's just the case of cut'n'paste my code from
one driver to another, but it seem that nobody at Lucent is
able to do this simple task...

  There are known issues with firmware 6.X, but it
should work with firmware 4.X. Please try to use wvlan0 as the
interface name, and give us a lot more info on what's
happening (like messages in the log).
