I have a Wi-Linx b PMCIA card and am looking for drivers.
any ideas of drivers or chipset ?
interestingly enough I went throught the press releases as the website
is now a porno link.
turns out that it was a proud Winniepg Canada based company.
I am in Winnipeg.
one name was in the phone book. tuned out non working.
Other was a very proud CEO Ed J Balenger.
he was hiding in a rural area "Pointe du Bois"
When I politely asked him for information this morning all he kept
repeating was "I recent this intrusion at my residence"
told him it was nice dealing with " such a reputable individual"
shaes of Enron.

Yes. Does the card have an FCC ID number? If so, go to:
https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oet/cf/eas/reports/Gener...
and incribe the number in the semi-broken search thing. If you read
through the test docs, it will usually display the original
manufactory and chipset. There are a substantial number of "generic"
drivers for Prism and Broadcom chipsets available.

Presidents of companies usually don't know much about their product or
service. Asking the president of most companies for tech support is
usually a waste of time. They're usually non-technical. I find it
interesting that you seem to expect lifetime support for this product
and possibly anything you purchase. In the US, we have a confusing
maze of laws that require parts and support for 10 years in the auto
biz, which is slowly being extended to other product areas. Is there
some similar law in Canada?

Incidentally, I made the mistake of admitting that I had something to
do with the design of some products in a newsgroup. The product
hasn't been produced for 25 years, but that doesn't stop people from
calling and writing about it. I'm usually fairly helpful via email,
where I can answer in my spare time. However, a phone call is
un-necessarily intrusive (unless desperate) and I usually terminate
those early with a recital of my exhorbitant consulting rates.

It appears that the company in question appeared in Winnipeg about
1998 and disappeared about mid 2001. It became a member of
the TRLABs consortium, which would have made it eligable for
federal government network infrastructure grants. There also appears
to have been some connection to electronic voting machines.

Hypothesis: they came, they got a CANARIE grant, they couldn't hold up their
end of the grant for some reason, so they went under; that there are
pending lawsuits connected to this, so the ex "President and CEO" is
sensitive about being tracked down to his residence.

This is only speculation on my part, based upon my knowledge of the
Winnipeg networking scene in that timeframe. Elements of it are
testable (e.g., CANARIE would have a list of grant recipients; lawsuits
are matters of public record), and I know people who would probably
know a bit more about the company. But I don't really care, and will
leave any investigation to someone who does care.

Jeff,
was not expecting life long support i.e its 10 years old stopped
working and I want a replacment.
all I wanted was a Win 98 or 2000 driver or be steered to a
relevant site or resource.
understand the role of a President in planning and maintaining
corporate direction and health.
what I was pointing out was here was a person who allegedly
took company Perks and benefits and lorded over employees. Also of
government grants funded this project.
in Canada we had a politically motivated scandal over a sum of
money that was very small ( tiny) in relation to the Gun Registry.
The Canadian Gun Registry which started with a few million budget and
now "Auditor general takes aim at gun registry's $1-billion price tag
". The only answer the politicians and bearucrat's have is htat we
need more funds.
whole scandal was $ 100 or so. Canadians were irate. Losing
sleep!!!!!
every politican took his or her perks but claims to have known
nothing. Even the Prime Minister even though he signed the documents
and is said to be
held accountable can't be held legally responsible;

"Jean Chretien may have been prime minister during the federal
sponsorship program, but it wasn't up to him to make sure every penny
was spent honestly, a public inquiry was told Thursday. "

this really has nothing to do with this forum but just thought
to answer you about my expectations of realistic service and what my
point was.

What's the FCC ID and I'll try to steer you in the right direction.

Oh, that's an easy one. You have one of the older
Wavelan/Orinoco/Lucent/Agere/Avaya/Proxim/Whatever PCMCIA cards that
uses the Hermes chip. It's a Prism II based system.
https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oet/cf/eas/reports/ViewE...'IMRWLPC24H'
However, the number you supplied is the version with only an external
antenna connector and no built in antenna. This is normally only used
in access points, such as the Apple Airport or Apple client radios.
Are your sure about the FCC ID number?

The drivers are easy. Anything that will work with the old orinoco
Gold or Silver cards will work with your orphan card. See:
http://support.proxim.com/cgi-bin/proxim.cfg/php/enduse...*&p_li=
I'm not sure if you'll need to update the firmware, but it wouldn't
hurt.

Working with what? An access point, hot spot, or neighbors system?
If you just installed the driver and didn't test the connection, you
need to step backwards a bit and get that working before trying a
zillion utilities.

For Windoze 98/ME, use only Netstumbler 0.3.30.
For W2K and XP, use 0.4.0

I couldn't make Aerosol work with anything I tried.

The Orinoco client manager has signal levels and S/N ratio numbers in
the site survey and monitoring section.

Huh? I don't understand.

> firmware will not update.
> any ideas ?

What firmware version did you try to update? If it's really the old
Wavelan card, nothing will update it.

Jeff,

reception was from my SMC wireless b router.
used netstumbler 4 with Windows 2000 as the OS.
wanted some means of signal feedback.
previously used either a Network Everywhere USB card.
I was trying to install the setup program wondering if maybe it would
give me some idea of signal strength.
unfortunately when I installed this program got no connection at all.
USB device was never plugged into computer.
however when I removed the program and rebooted connection was there.
used aerosol with the Network Everywhere card.
worked fine.

thank you
