Okay, so I was assuming that was the case but didn't want to suggest
anything unless this was clarified first.

Great, ... to my understanding and recollection I believe you need the
following items installed only.
NIE 2.0 last release if there were updates. No the modified files.
WiFi Driver
(DO NOT install Lantern or MoreWiFi as these cause conflicts with the
WaveLAN Cards... if this were a COMPAQ WL110 (a rebadged WaveLAN Gold
then MoreWiFi would needed) .... Lantern is needed for cards with a
long file name IIRC...

HTH and is correct - please correct me if I've added or left something
out incorrectly..

God bless,
