It costs $85 more to use the lucent base station I guess.  A friend
could not get the Cisco/Aironet card connecting in ad hoc mode to
a NetBSD computer with a lucent card.  Do not know what OS was running
on the Cisco card.  I have the lucent base station working well with
encryption to a NetBSD laptop.  The apple airport worked well but
no encryption and I didn't have a Mac to maintain the config.
