        Actually yeah, something is goofing around with mine too... I only 
tried wardriving, I didn't actually try using it as a driver.. even 
though the SSID names show up at normal range, and the card now appears 
in the Network pane (en02), there's something that's interrupting every 
two seconds or so. But, I think I'm on to it... With the IOxperts 
driver, the link light on the card would blink on and off, going "on, 
off, on, off" within the range of a second. Now, With that removed and 
this installed, it's acting a little more erratic, there's like an 
extra pulse to the lighting. Instead of an even "on, off" it's more of 
a heartbeat's type of pacing. Also, with the card very close to a 
signal, and the graph the Kismac program has activated and set to 
signal, it goes near the peak and then cuts out every couple of 
seconds. Looks pretty spikey and consistent. So I guess that can clue 
in the programmers, there's something interrupting the scanning cycle 
or something of that nature. Lastly, I got online long enough for iChat 
to make the "connected" sound, but not long enough to draw up a buddy 

Good Luck and thanks for the great program!
