Yes.

Compaq WL110 is indeed Orinoco card. I don't know how you get that
identtification from it, though. Anyway, don't expect prism2_srec and
Host AP driver to work correctly with that card.

How safe a method do you want? If you really want to know and don't
trust on it not being Prism2/2.5/3, just open up the card and find the
largest chip.. It has ISL* or HFA* text on it if it is Prism2.. ;-)
