Not rude... I did read that and I understand that, but I also know
people can be pretty smart sometimes and come up with ways of doing
things that may not be documented or readily thought possible. You
never know for sure unless you ask. For instance, my D-Link 650+ card
is also not really supported and the chipset is not documented, but with
some research and asking appropriate questions I was able to get it to
do a lot of things it *shouldn't* be able to do.
So I maintain, if anyone has any ideas, I'd love to know.
