Al >>> Thanks for the info.  Just shows how wrong a guess can be!  And 
the response rate you provide - - give or take another 10%! - feels more 
like the relative level of laptop wifi use generally, if the content of 
the forums is any guide to a guestimate (not that my track record with 
guestimates is very impressive).

	If 10%-15% is about right, I wonder whether it goes some way to 
explaining why the kernel developers are, historically, perhaps a bit 
less bothered about wifi support:  not enough people affected;  not a 
crippling issue for the kernel.

	Let's hope the open wifi drivers project will make this area a bit easier.
