Jim and Jouni,

thanks so much for the fast responce.

The cards I use are:
1. Proxim rangeLAND-DS with firmware version: 0.7.6
2. Linksys WPC 11 ver.3 with firmware version: 1.7.4

Is this the problem? Sould both cards have the same firmware version? 
So sould I
upgrade the firmware on the Proxim card?

Thanks again,
