hey jean,

where may i find the wireless extension patch for v12 to v13?
or to any further recent one from v12 will do as well.
is there a diff file somewhere that i can download?

with the current v12, can i just use the patch to v15?
i read the diff and its only for v14 to v15.  :(

well, jason suggested to me to patch the w.ext and
see if i can fix the missing essid problem that i'm still having.


cheers,
