Re: [edlug] wireless cards

I bought a bundled SMC PCMCIA card and EZConnect Access Point from PC World at Kinnaird Park a few months ago (for about £100). RH 8.0 sees the card during boot up and gives a message to the effect that the card does not use the Prism 2 chipset but that it will do its best. Then it all works fine - much simpler than setting up the same card in Win 98.

The only potential problem is that the web interface to the AP only works properly from Internet Explorer, but that is only an issue if you want to assign it a static IP address. Once set up you shouldn't need to touch it again.
