humm... do you have any pointers to this? It looks to me like
everything is supported...
Nate> See www.sputnik.com for an example of an interesting linux-based
Nate> application of the Prism II access point mode. Only works on
Nate> real PCMCIA slots right now, and not via PCI/PCMCIA adapters,
Nate> but they're promising the desktop-based cards will work
Nate> soon... works in laptops now. Bootable CD-ROM with full access
Nate> point capabilities for a Prism II chipset 802.11b card and
Nate> PCMCIA ethernet card in the other slot.

Nate> Of course, the security implications are kinda "interesting",
Nate> and carrier's Acceptable Use Policies might get injured in the
Nate> filming of this segment. :-)
yeah... very true. Too bad WEP is so broken.
