what are the H/W + F/W versions on your card though? these companies mix
and match chipsets throughout the same product model without mention
other than a different HW/FW version number in the fine print. I brought
this card AFTER reading the wireless wiki as i was looking for a card
that would work out of the box, but didnt pay enough attention to the
versions & got the one that didnt work!
