Ed, and other list members,
I'm using an Orinoco silver card under win XP in my A22P. When first
installed it was recognized fine and wireless networking services
appeared. After a couple of months I no longer have access to wireless
networking configuration - the properties are greyed out - and the card
no longer works as a result.
Anyone else come across this problem?
