It is becoming a real search to find out if there _are_ any drivers
out there for this 11.b pccard device.

Here is what info I have been able to gather so far...

Prims was bought out several times, but the product has been
obsolete for several years as there is no longer any support
anywhere for newer drivers for this discontinued wireless chipset.
You should really replace the card.

Yeah, it was $5 so I took a chance.

Thx for the info. (Besides the LAN I'll be using the laptop on is
running 11.g anyway.)
