   What exactly is the difference between all the various flavors of
WaveLan cards out there? I've gathered that the difference between the
Silver and Gold cards is the level of WEP encryption, and it everywhere
seems to refer to Orinocco as if it is just a renaming of WaveLan Turbo
(Hmm, someone in the marketing division is an Enya fan?). but I've also
here that the Orinocco cards won't work with the Newton - yet - does
that mean that they not only changed the name, but changed the protocol
as well? And then does anyone know the difference between the A and B
Wavelan cards, and which ones will definitely work with the Newton?
