I haven't upgraded to 1.0 yet, but I did have a Bronze working with
alpha 2 (or was it 3). Does that count? :-)

FYI, that is why I personally think that the compatibility issues were
more firmware revision rather than card.

One thing about Bronzes as alternatives to Silvers and Golds... Bronzes
are limited to 5mb (8mb in the Turbo version) and do not support any
form of WEP. The first is not an issue unless you have a peer-to-peer
network (all drop to highest common speed) or a speed-locked one, but
the second may limit use on some corporate nets. (Anybody know how an AP
with WEP enabled is supposed to handle a card with no WEP?)
