my current plan of attack is probably 2 lucent/orinoco wavelan 128/RC4
cards .. one in the laptop .. one in the border router machine on an ISA
adaptor .. one guy I spoke to reckoned it would work .. another reckoned
I was an idjut (well we knew _that_ already ..) and you had to have a
'access point' not just two wavelan cards .. dunno which to believe as
half the access points just have a wavelan card in them anyway ... I do
know that they are piss expensive over here .. might wait till I go to
the states ...
