- These have a connector for an external antenna. (25Apr2001) Silver - 64bit WEP encryption; Gold - 128bit WEP encryption
Be careful mixing the Lucent Orinoco drivers and client software on the same computer. I have had problems under Win2k with my Orinoco cards after installing the AriRunner client software.
The Orinoco Silver card works OK without the client software installed. I'll try to re-install the Orinoco AP manager and client software and see if both cards will still work. -- LonnieWormley
