| Another draw back is that these cards WILL NOT connect to an Apple Base

This is an aspect of the current driver implementation, not the cards
themselves. Laurent is working on an improved driver that should be able
to operate in the standard mode (I forget the name).

Also, an access point operating in adhoc mode on channel 3 should be able
to talk to the Lucent NIC, but I have not tried it since I don't have a
Lucent NIC to try.
