  Hi,

  I can understand your frustration. It seem that the Pcmcia adapter from Lucent are a big source of trouble, we have many instance of them not working the way they should under Linux or Windows.
  For the spec of Pcmcia, I would start in the Pcmcia Howto.

  For the spec of the Wavelan, Lucent has published a very short document. It's almost useless, and looking in the driver is uselly more useful, anyway it's on Andy's page :
http://www.fasta.fh-dortmund.de/users/andy/wvlan/

  Now, if you are hacking the driver, you may want to synchronise with the others doing it, in particular Harald and Benjamin. Check details on my web page :

  Good luck !

  Jean

Do you mean to say that the ISA->PCMCIA boards are faulty? Or did you mean that the current versions of the driver(s) have difficulty with these boards?

Can you recommend a better ISA->PCMICA board? This one was not very expensive and I'd be happy to spend money for one that would work...

Will do. Thanks for putting together a very good web page on this subject!

> Good luck !

Thanks, looks like I'll need it. :^)
