I have a Network Anywhere (wpc11 I believe). It's based on the acx100 
chipset, didnt work in warty but works like a champ in hoary. I also 
have a netgear 54g card, based on the prism54g chipset, it is supposed 
to work and the system finds it, but it always gives an interrupt error 
when I try to activate the card. It's in a really old laptop, so that 
might be the issue.
