orinoco_cs with 3com airconnect AP

Im trying to get my orinoco gold card to comunicate with the 3com airconnect
AP.

Has anyone actually got this to work?

Is there compatability problems with orinoco_cs and this AP?

I'm running linux 2.4.5.with orinoco_cs compiled as a module.  I get all
modules to load, and seemingly configure the card.  The result of the
configurations below, is the flashing light on the card blinks when I try to 
ping the AP.  The AP sees the orinoco as a wireless client as well as the RF 
transmission(ping), but instead of recognizing it as a normal data 
packet(which is what happens when i ping the AP with the orinoco card 
underwindows), the packet registers under the BC/MC catagory.  Below are my 
configurations.  I am new at this so any and all advice is welcome and 
appreciated.

Thanks
Mike
