*A" buggy orinoco_cs driver?

I'd say --->THE<--- buggy orinoco_cs driver!!

I haven't been able to get a sustained connection out of that driver, talking to any of a wide variety of access points, with my Lucent silver cards in about fifteen different computers.

The first thing I do on a new install is blow those away. I can't believe something so dysfunctional seems to be the "canonical" driver for the Hermes-chipset cards.

Does anyone here know the story on this deal? I don't know of a soul who has found it to work reliably, at least in the 2.4.x kernel series.
