Mine too, albeit differently ;-) A bit too early for cardbus?
But re: the wavelan cards: I can't hardly imagine any dump PCMCIA adapter
card to limit the transferrate to about 500kBit/s. But I didn't think of
this and didn't try to optimize BIOS settings for this, maybe it's doing
several io recovery wate states after each access to the WaveLAN card.
This would certainly be avoided by any kind of PCI adapter.
