Hell, I can't even get my linksys cards to talk to my lucent card.
WEP or no. 

I have 2 linksys cards that are just fine talking to one another and
I used one of them at Usenix where it worked fine talking to the
infrastructure.. But I have an orinoco gold and I can't get it to 
speak to either of my linksys cards. I'm quite sure the configuration is
correct.  If I tcpdump, I can see packets sent by the linksys 
and I can see my orinoco respond, but the linksys doesn't appear
to receive the packets as sent by the orinoco...

I've got the latest firmware on the orinoco.

Anyone have any ideas?
