We havn't actually bought any cards yet, but there are huge numbers of them
out there that are reasonably priced provided you are willing to spent an
hour or two a week for six months looking (we have)!!!
The best card we have seen in terms of performance and value for money is I
think theAvaya Networks one
http://www.hyperlinktech.com/web/avaya_pc_card_spec.html ) It claims to
manage 1750 feet in open office. Just think what we should manage when we do
a bit of home brewing on it. So far that is the only card we have seen that
claims to be even close to our requirements. We have been in touch with a
group in Australia though who have modified lots of cards without any
