5.  TECHNICAL CONSTRAINTS

    None.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

6.  KNOWN ISSUES

6.1 Disable and Enable the Card's Radio when using Whistler OS
    The card enable/disable status is NOT preserved over a system
    reboot / power off-on cycle.

6.2 Site Monitor Function may hang with Peer-to-Peer Workgroup.

    When the card has Station Functions firmware v.6.04, the Site
    Monitor function of the Client Manager will (sooner or later)
    hang when the station is in Peer-to-Peer Group mode.
    The fewer stations participate in the same Peer-to-Peer Group,
    the higher the chance this problem occurs. When this problem
    occurs, normal data communication may be hampered as well.
    Using the Station Functions firmware v.6.06 or higher, prevents
    this problem.

6.3 Site Monitor Limitations with Peer-to-Peer Workgroups.

    With Station Functions firmware v.6.04 or v.6.06 on the Card,
    the Site Monitor function of the Client Manager does not show
    Peer-to-Peer Groups when the station is connected to an access
    point or RG based network.
    It also does not show other networks (neither infrastructure
    nor Peer-to-Peer Groups) when the station is operating in
    a Peer-to-Peer Group.
    A future version of the Station Functions firmware will address
    this issue.
