The card and laptop is an employer resource, so as we say in America "Ya
getz what yez payz fer!" So, fobbing off the card is not an option here,
and requesting another brand of card is also not an option.
MRi is "looking into it", but I do not expect this to lead to a solution.

The preceived wisdom here, from myself (thanks to Google) and others has

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
