I did what most people warned not to do: buy an access point and PC Card from different manufacturers. All this WiFi stuff is suppose to be compatible, right? Luckily for me, this router works fine with the Orinoco Gold PC card I purchased. I did have to reboot the router sometimes to get the laptop to associate, but that problem went away after I upgraded to the latest firmware on the router. Configuration was a breeze with the clear and friendly browser interface. Surprisingly, this router doesn't provide access control based on MAC address, like Netgear routers. In their defense, MAC based access control is very weak, since MAC address can be spoofed. I love the fact that I can disable management access from the WAN port, which prevents hackers from trying to reconfigure the router. This router is loaded with features and is a great buy.
