Anyone know if it works?

I've been using the Windows 98 hack for a while and it
seems to work well. It was the only way I could get my
Dlink to "talk" to the Roamabout/Enterasys cards at 11
Mb. Also worked with 2Mb Wavelan cards, which don't
like the SVEC AP unless it is throttled back to 2Mb.

Isn't old technology great.......

See Ya....
