2.  SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

2.1 Operating System
    These Drivers are for the Microsoft Win98, Win98 SE, WinME,
    Win2K and WinXP Operating Systems.

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

3.  NEW IN THIS RELEASE

3.1 Version 7.82                                           SR02-2.3
    * WPA for HERMES-I
      Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a security option that restricts
      wireless access to your network and communications as an
      alternative to the IEEE 802.11 Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
      standard.
      * WEP encrypts data using static encryption keys that must be
        set to identical values on each Wireless Client and Base Station.
      * WPA, also referred to as TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)
        or SSN (Simple Secure Network) will provide dynamic encryption
        keys to Authorised Wireless Clients only.

      To use WPA you will need a wireless infrastructure that supports
      Wireless Client Authentication.
      * Wireless Clients that satisfy the following requirements:
        - Use hardware and drivers that support WPA (see below).
        - Run an operating system that provides 802.1 x support.
          *  Computers running MS-Windows XP (Service Pack 1)
             support the 802.1x supplicant by default.
             QFE Q815485 is required and can be downloaded from the
             Microsoft website.
          *  Computers running MS-Windows 98, ME or 2000 will need a
             dedicated 3rd party supplicant.
      * Wireless Base Stations must:
         - Support the WPA protocol
         - Be connected to a dedicated Authentication Server
           (for example a RADIUS server).
      The Authentication Server will validate whether a Wireless Client is
      authorised to access the network and give clearance to the Base Station
      to provide a dynamic encryption key plus access to the Wireless Client.

      NOTE:
      This release only supports WPA for wireless clients equipped with an
      Agere Systems Hermes-1-based radio.
      This release does not support WPA for:
      * Wireless Clients equipped with Hermes 2 radios
      * Wireless Clients equipped with Hermes 1 radios that:
        -operate in "Peer-to-Peer Group" mode.
        -operate in "Act as Base Station" mode.

3.2 Version 7.82                                             SR02-2.2
    HERMES-II
      * This was the first release for Hermes-II.

3.3 Version 7.82                                             SR02-2.1
    HERMES-I
      * Improved firmware version 8.72 for station and AP is
        embedded in the driver.
      * Wake On LAN (WOL) functionality has been added to the
        drivers for the PCI adapter.
        To be able to work with WOL following settings must be
        applied (XP):
        1. Advanced Power management ON
        2. Wake On Lan ON
        3. Allow this device to wake up the computer ON
        WOL reacts on so-called magic packets only.

3.4 Version 7.62                                             SR02-1
      * Introduction of driver variants
        Variant 2 has been defined for two purposes:
        1. to identify NDIS 5.1 drivers (NDIS 5.0 has variant 1)
           Note that NDIS 5.0 and NDIS 5.1 are covered by NDIS 5
        2. to identify NT4 Softex drivers (NT4 has variant 1)
        Variant 2 drivers have a 'B' appended to the filenames
        listed above.
        Future variant 3 will have a 'C' appended.
        Variant 1 has no 'A' appended.

      * Fixed OHCI controller problem for USB drivers
      * Drivers support both Variants of the USB Card.
        Both old style Variant 1 (with embedded PC Card)
        and new style Variant 2 (single board).

      * For each OS a multi-brand INF file is generated.
        As the name suggests, a multi-brand INF file contains
        the card characteristics of various brands.
        Multi-brand must not be confused with Combined, the latter
        representing the card characteristics on various OS’es 
        for one brand.
      * Various inconveniences w.r.t. Japanese help files
        and screen texts have been resolved
      * Stability issues have been resolved for
        the Control Panel Applet
      * Firmware 8.42 is used in the driver.
        - Initial value for CurrentTXRate is 11 Mbps i.s.o. 2 Mbps.
        - Led behaviour has been modified:
          Power led off:                      radio disabled
          Power led continuously on:          radio enabled
          Power led flickers every 100 ms:    radio enabled and
                                              power management ON
          Activity led off                    radio disabled
          Activity led flickers once per 10s: radio enabled
                                              but no network found
          Activity led flickers every 100 ms: radio enabled and
                                              Rx/Tx activity

3.5 Version 7.42                                        Winter 2002
      * Added support for
        - 802.1x authentication
        - Ultra high density
        - Promiscuous mode
        - PCI Adapter Card

      * Extended functionality of Control Panel Applet
        The Control Panel Applet has been extended such that it 
        supports multiple cards to be configured in a single 
        system.

      * Agere-ization has been performed, involving
        replacement of Lucent-related texts to Agere equivalent.

3.6 Version 7.08                                          Fall 2001
      * Correct problem: Control Panel Applet does not accept
        hexadecimal coded encryption keys.

3.7 Version 7.06                                        Summer 2001
      * Added Firmware as part of the driver.
      * Changed ControlPanel to Wizard style
      * Added Enhanged PowerManagement

3.8 Version 6.28                                        Winter 2001
      * Added functionality for enabling/disabling radio from the
        Client Manager 
      * Putting 'ANY' in a peer-to-peer profile gives a apropriate 
        warning.
      * Profiles can now be selected through the keyboard.
