I heard you previously. It's not a case of not believing you or being dense 
but a case of 1. learning the patterns used in the hostap_cs.conf file so 
that I don't have to be on this list 2. making sure of my facts before going 
to the maintainers of the Linux Wireless Howto and pointing out that there 
are some rather big exceptions with the Nokia C110 cards. I have brought 
several of these cards based upon the chipset only to find that they can't 
be used for the purpose I have intended them for. As this is the case, I 
would like to help anyone else avoid this mistake.
Shouldn't you post exception cards on your website? I mean, you specify the 
chipset, and sure I've heard that there are some exceptions but no real list 
of what those exceptions are.
