Hmm, first of all, a P75 might actually be too slow for such a card
(some Windows drivers claim >= 200MHz, AFAIK).
Right now I don't think so, but it would be useful to keep this possibility
Second, please retry with 0.2.0pre1. It fixed several connection related
Thanks for the very detailed report!

Yesterday, I tried 0.2.0.pre1 with similar results to my modified 0.1h=20
version. Today, I got my hands on the router again and turned off 1) WEP =
2) MAC based association restriction, i.e. the router is totally open now=
Now things work with 0.1h - seems the router was the problem (I have yet =
figure out if it was the WEP or the MAC access which caused the failure).
The P75 routes my traffic fine, system load is below 10% for a DSL connec=
Thanks for the driver; I'll report later what the problem was. Right now =
is a succes story:
P75 with 64MB Ram, DLink 520+ with Texas Instruments chipset, windows dri=
1.9.3.e, no encryption, no MAC based restrictions.
Happy hacking ;)

The 520+ -driver seems not to support WEP encryption, at least with "64" =
Maybe the 520+ does it in software? That would explain the minimum P200 a=
requirement. How can I check what causes problems with encryption?
