I'm trying to get my ePod's onto my wireless network. I have two 3COM AirConnect access points (on different channels) already installed in the house, and can connect to them fine via the 3COM AirConnect PCMCIA cards and a Compaq (Prism) PCMCIA card. I saw that the 3COM won't work (the drivers can't even find the card), so I tried my Compaq card. The drivers find my card and it searches, but even with the SSID correct (I did double check the registry just to make sure the UI didn't screw up) I can't get a connection. I tried both the Compaq and then the Intersil drivers, same result. Realizing the firmware was a bit older I reflashed to the current Compaq firmware, but that didn't fix it either.
The cards are in Infastructure mode (same as the cards in the laptops), and I spent most of the night trying to get it working to no avail. Anyone else connection to a 3COM access point thru any other 802.11b card on the ePod?
Im going to try and buy two of the Linksys cards after work, but since they seem very similar to the Compaq (same drivers) I don't have much confidence in that 'fix'.
Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated!
