You mentioned that you are having trouble getting the PCMCIA->PCI adapter for your Orinoco cards working. This is probably due to the fact that they are PCI 2.2 (PC99) compliant ONLY. This means that it only works in PC's that have PCI 2.2 spec'd slots, usually only MoBos with no ISA meet this spec.
>From the Orinoco/Wavelan/Agere Systems site:
"The ORiNOCO PCI adapter is ideal for PC99 compliant PCs
(PCI slots only machines) or PCs that have BIOS
supporting PCI 2.2 or higher.
* For PCs with an ISA slot, the ORiNOCO ISA adapter is strongly advised. "
Since only really new MoBos will be compliant, you probably won't get to use the adapter unless you get a new computer.
