The preceived wisdom here, from myself (thanks to Google) and others has
been that either the card is not supported, or it has a horrible chipset
which makes people shudder and is essentially not supported. It would seem
that your best option is to fob it off on some 'doze user (that's what I did
with my old Xircom card) in exchange for soemthing else, or untrouser your
credit card and buy another one :-( I've seen 3Com cards advertised on Scan
for below 50 quid, so I imagine you can get a lesser brand for less if you
look around - but do make sure it supports Linux first, as you can't find
any 'doze users to swap with (otherwise you wouldn't have bought it, right ?)
