I have WPC11 cards in an Elan bridge,SuSE 8.0, Hostap CVS dated 4/22/03.

My problem is that Orinoco cards (win98, Orinoco client manager) doesnt even
see that the ap exists, (I have 2such boxes, similar config, same CVS). I am
writing this on the same test client, only using a Nokia card, which
associates fine with either AP.  Is there some reason that the Orinoco cards
cant see the APs?

The distance isnt an issue as the client is within 5 ft of the AP.
