It turns out that I was using a waaaaay too long
module "wavelan2_cs" opts "irq_list=11 network_name=Studio20 port_type=3 station_name=Herbie channel=10 enable_encryption=y key_1=xxxxxxxxxxxxx transmit_key_id=1 pc_debug=0x7fffffff debug_flags=0xffffffff"
The line blew cardmgr's internal buffers.
That's the good news.
The bad news is now I can bring up both the Lucent and the GPL driver... and neither of them can talk to Windows.
I'm not impressed, Lucent...
I'll call their tech support and kvetch...
(David - I'll email my patch to you to look at)!
