By the way, in the latest version (20031217) :
   - ad-hoc mode works
   - the driver survived after a suspend-to-disk operation, and retained
     its settings.
   - and hopefully, the frequent crashes problems experienced under high
     load should be solved (by the removal of the txreclaim() function).

Tested on Fedora Core 1 (kernel 2.4.22-1.2129nptl), and with a vanilla
kernel 2.6.0-test11, using firmware 5.00.03 from Cisco.

Best wishes,
