Paul Khoury suggested that we "ask away" on wireless stuff, so here
I've been using a Lucent (now Proxim) Orinoco 802.11b in my ThinkPad
600x, with excellent results - it's a lot more reliable and has a better
range than the Intel AnyPoint II card I was using before. The Orinoco is
a PCMCIA card, not CardBus. Questions:
(1) Does the (sometimes) lower power drain of a CardBus card make a
switch to CardBus worthwhile?
(2) Is there any CardBus 802.11b card that works as well as the Orinoco?
(The new Proxim 802.11a/b cards seem expensive, and if I'm going to
spend the money on a dual-standard card, I'd rather wait for one that
will work with 802.11g.)
Thanks for any information...
