That is correct with a modification... I seem to have forgotten to test v2002-04-24 so the problem could actually have come with v2002-05-02. I will try that release as soon as possible, but right now I have lost my compiled version of it. Will check it tomorrow morning.

I'm using v1.0.6 of wvlan_cs and orinoco_cs v.0.09b. At first I thought that it was wds frames that made orinoco cards confused, but the problem was still there even when I turned wds off.
