Just writing to inform about good experience with this card. First of all - the latest firmware available from LinkSys is 1.4.2 which is known not to work. To get it working I downloaded 1.4.9 firmware from netgear, put it in the same folder with 1.4.2 upgrade utility and replaced all occurrences of "10402" to "10409" in update.exe . After that I was able to upgrade firmware. Also 2002-5-19 gives lots of Oops on my system (Pentium-100, PCI 2.1 , 2.4.18 ). The latest CVS snapshot, in opposite, works pretty good. Now I have a router/firewall/AP - an old box with 3 NICs in it. CPU utilisation is around 15%, and I don't use busmaster mode.
