That sounds like an old NCR WaveLan card. The original was before the 802.11

standards. It operated in the 900MHz ISM band and was basicaly 2 Megabit wireless

network card, compatable only with others like it. NCR sold the product line to Lucent

at about the time the standards were adopted, as I recall.


Hope this helps,
