I've seen the Compaq WL200 but it's not listed in the FreeBSD-4.2
Hardware.txt.  As they seem to cost $199 each! (and I need two) I
fear it could be a while before they're cheap enough for me, and
by then I guess they'll be 'supported'.

Also, they have counter-clockwise threads on the antenna sockets!
Is this a US standard or an attempt to stop people connecting
'better' antenna?

Thanks again
