I too have an express base station and was experiencing the same results
as you described. I have sent my card to Martin Joseph so he could test
it. Sense this is the only card I have had (the bronze not turbo) I had
no way to tell if it was the base station or the card or both. I set my
station to 802.11b only and removed all security (no dice). I also
tested it with Escale by trying to connect to my iBook (with airport
extreme) with the same results. It may be that the card works with
older 802.11b only hardware but fails miserably with 802.11a/g
hardware. Hopefully after martin tests my card we will have some
definitive results.
