Cisco uses their own MAC but the rest is standard. Michael is right that the 350 series took the output up to 100mW.

I just installed eight of the new dual-band Aironet 1200's, still 100mW, but I forgot to look for a chip ident.

>>From what I understand Cisco/Aironet started with the Prism chipset (just
like Lucent) and modified it for themselves. My further understanding is they actually use part of the Prism chips, but have their own MAC which isn't Prism compatible.

No HostAP support for Cisco cards. :-(
