The Linksys WET-11 bridge, if taken apart, contains a PCMCIA (PC Card) wireless adapter with an external antenna connection, which could be very useful.
Unfortunately it has no helpful identifying marks. On one side there is an FCC ID (PKW-WM11); the other side has a model number (?) of WM302-IJR10, a serial number, and a date code. Do a search for that FCC ID and you’ll get tons of people asking where they can find drivers, and if anyone knows what kind of card it is, etc.
Apparently nobody thought to actually put it into a PC, which I did. Windows can’t find a driver for it, but it does identify itself as a
PCMCIA-11M_WLAN_CARD_V3.0. So I did a search on that string, and found that the drivers for a ZyAIR B-100 made by Zyxel will work just fine for everything from Windows 95 to Windows XP.
The software is available here: http://www.zyxeltech.de/zyairb100.htm and I’ve tested the older version in Windows 95, and the newer version in Windows XP. Both work great.
Hopefully Google will lead some weary travellers here. If this has made your day, visit my website and click on an ad! http://mike.eire.ca/
