	I have a 3CRWE73796B with firmware 2.20, and it works for
me. There is just two tricks to know :
	o David has somewhat broken my encryption workaround, you need
to set up your wep key in all four slots to make it work (don't ask).
	o IBSS with Orinoco doen't work (but work with another Symbol
card), but if you set the card in demo mode, it will talk to an IBSS
Orinoco (again, don't ask).
	And yeah, sensitivity is 0. Big deal.

	If you want debugging, you'd better send more info than just
"it doesn't work".
