> On a different subject - what is this "wireless" file under the /proc
That is part of the linux wireless extensions. It allows access to some of
the stuff in /proc/aironet in a consistent way. When I originally wrote
the driver, 802.11 support was missing, but now there is no reason, besides
lack of time, that I don't support them. It is at the top of my list of
things to do. (Actually changing the license to GPL is at the top...)

any thoughts/revelations on the following issues:
1) what is future of 100mW cards - i.e. how much longer will they be manufactured?
2) where can they currently be bought on Planet Earth?
3) any suggestions on how to tweak the 30mW cards to perform better on outdoor links?
Specifically, we have noticed on at least 2 occasions on outdoor links of over say 5 miles that the link appears
to be fine but when start to do small/modest amount of traffic that suddenly get lots of packet loss.
have NOT seen this in the past with 100mW cards...
BTW: in at least one of these cases, putting an amplifier did NOT seem to help... so apart from more powerful antennas (we
were already using 24dBi grids), cutting cable losses etc any ideas on ther parameters that might make the links more
robust??? anyone seen similar symptoms with either 30 or 100mW radios?
