I have a Lucent Bronze Turbo Card. After" bragging" how flawlessly it
worked my graphite Air Port died. I replaced it with a new Air Port
Express and guess what. The Bronze Card no longer works. Before I was
connecting with DHCP. The bronze card won't even get on the internet
with the DHCP. I switched to manual, and manually entered DNS settings.
Now it gets onto the internet but then gives me an error message saying
that it is unable to find the host server. There is a reference on
Hiroshi's website to having tested his driver with Airport Express and
having mixed results. The whole point is the problem may have a lot to
do with the base station and less to do with the card.
