I´d be happy if I could. I´d also be happy if this behaviour was
somewhat consistent, we all have the very same laptops here in the
office (Dell Latitude C600) and the same Xircom´s (RBEM56G-100), but
some of them require being in promiscous mode all of the time, some
only staying in promiscous mode for about 1 second...It was also the
same with my former laptop (some Compaq, same Xircom, IIRC).
