When I got my WAP, I bought a second as the WAP + CF card was about $30 cheaper than just the CF Card alone. But, when I popped the card into my PDA, it doesn;t seem to get recognized beyond letting me give it a name (I installed the drivers from Linksys.com and all that). Are you sue this is a LinkSys?

    It was according to the FCC. Unfortunately I don't have the FCC ID handy, but you can look it up for yourself at:

    http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/

    It probably has different firmware than a regular CF card, and so isn't recognized by the driver. I wouldn't recommend re-flashing it unless you don't mind the risk of trashing the Siemens AC unit...

        My Sharp Zaurus (C700) recognized it immediately:

        Bromax OEM 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card (Prism 2.5)

        The Hostap linux drivers recognized it, but I think the prism firmware (1.4.2 station, 1.1.0 primary) needs updating since the AP doesn't appear elsewhere.

        One thing is that iwconfig/iwlist showed all channels including 12-14 - they are only restricted by the AP hardware or the config software, so be carefult not to violate the FCC rules. Of course you would need another similarly open to be able to connect (though I've heard reports of some cards seeing the extra channels at a lowered data rate or signal strength).

          BroMax drivers don't work for me. Maybe some are LinkSys, others are BroMax?
