Sorry I missed your previous messages but what version of orinoco driver
that you use? From kernel tree or pcmcia-cs tree? It seems that the driver
did not recognized your card as Prism II (but only as Prism I).
Only the latest driver 0.11b (available in the lates pcmcia-cs and
2.4.19-pre kernels) works reasonably well with your card.
But again, linux-wlan-ng gives consistently better performance anyway.
