I'm currently trying to get one of these cards going under linux... I have
one going, but for some reason, I can't get the other going... Tis a pain in
the backside - but it's probably something I've done wrong... In windows,
these cards work fine and seem to be fairly good at their task... I haven't
used many other cards to be able to comment on them...

Out the 100Base-T, off the firewall, through the router, down the T1,
over the leased line, off the bridge, nothing but Net.

The net will not be what we demand, but what we make it. Build it well.

I'm trying to choose a path for cards at the moment with a view to hooking
up some antenna's and hopefully going the whole access point hog.
The Compaq WL200 PCI card looks like a pretty groovy card compared to others
on the hardware database.....100mW, external SMA connector, prism2, etc.
What are peoples thoughts on hermes versus prism2?
The only difference I have worked out is that prism2 cards can be setup to
run as an access point.
