Multiprotocol MAC/baseband processor (rev 01)

I remember buying this in Dubai. Forgot the company name on the box.

It is the same chip in the EEEPC and works out of the box.

The only strange thing is :

Somehow the reception of the EEEPC internal Antenna is better than the
antenna which came with the PCI card.

Should work ok for most internal wireless networks.

For more than 2 walls you probably would need a separate antenna.

I have a D-Link System WUA-1340 that is working out-of-the-box.
