NM makes no guarantees with drivers not distributed with the linux
kernel.  Most vendor drivers do not implement WEXT well enough to let
them do anything interesting.  I'd recommend using the built-in "hostap"
drivers instead, as long as your card is not a 'hermes' card.  Most
cards supported by orinoco_cs are supported by hostap_cs as well.
