Yes, I am. It's a Dell badged "TrueMobile" PCMCIA card which Linux
identifies as an Intersil PRISM2 11 Mbps Wireless Adaptor.

It works fine. I haven't had any difficulties connecting to any WAPs.
The only thing flakey is the strength of the connection reported. My
laptop is currently in the same room as the WAP, and yet the NM
notification area icon says my connection strength is only 40%. (If I
reboot into Windows the connection strength is reported as excellent.)

If I've missed anything you need to know just ask away.

Best, Darren
