Uploader Notes

Fixed the problem associating with D-link AP DWL-900AP+ or other TI solutions, when WEP key of AP is enabled and algorithm is set to open system.

Fixed the problem with Windows 98 SE: when the card is plugged in during the system boot up, it will freeze the system (blue screen or error message).

Automatically Channel selection (on the Configuration tab): If the Wireless mode is changed from 802.11a to 802.11b or from auto, the channel will not change automatically.

Improved the roaming response time by taking out unnecessary scanning process when the card roam to another Access Point.

802.11a/b Dual Band PC Card

This card supports Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
