Melco/Buffalo PCI->PCMCIA

I tried to use the Buffalo card under linux without much success.

With modules PCMCIA and some kernel messing, I managed to get some success
in that the card responds to network start and stop. I could not get
an identical card in a WinDoze machine to see it, in the end I gave up and
bought an SMC card instead, the Buffalo is now used only under 95.

The SMC card works fine as an access point for the other cards or as adhoc.

If anybody get more success with Buffalo than I did, don't keep it a secret

In the region which I understand, kernel pcmcia feature in 2.4.X do not
yet support PCI-CARDBUS Bridge .

So, please try without kernel pcmcia .
