Hi

Sorry didn't see your reply before now - My mailbox for mailinglists was full 
and I have been too busy to realize that before now!

But thanks for the information. I got a Zyxel ZyAir B100 PCMCIA card for about 
260 Dansh kr = 44 $
It is a Prism 3 card with 19 dbm output power and no antenna connector, but it 
came with station firmware v1.4.2, so it didn't work with the hostap driver 
in master mode. I flashed it to v1.8.0 and now it works fine :-)

I will try looking at the Micronet Prism Card that you mentioned - nice with 
the MMCX connector and 100 mW output.

Actually I saw that Zyxel also provides a ZyAir B101 PCMCIA card prism 2.5 
with MMCX connector, but with 15 dbm transmit power - if anybody is 
interested...

Best regard,
Martin
