That's good to know. I have a DLink and it recognize it just fine; however I can't set my WEP security, how did you do yours (if you have it setup that is)?

No WEP yet as I am using a public access point.

Linksys WPC11 Ver 3 doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong, or do I just need a new card?
Or can I install drivers to my HD install?

When I was looking for a pcmcia card for my laptop, I first looked at what was supported in DSL.
$ ls -la /lib/modules/2.4.20-xfs/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
What was there is:  airo, hermes, and orinoco
Since I refuse to install to hard drive, I got a card that I KNEW was going to be supported! :)

For  linksys you might check out:

or google search for  linux-wlan-ng and try installing that.

I'm running wireless under DSL using a AmbiCom 2.4 GHz / 11mpbs card, model WL1100B-PC/PCI, this is a generic from Taiwan which I think emulates an Orinoco card.  :;):
