3.1 Version 1.74              Winter 2001, USB Update

    The following functionality has been added:
    - USB support
    The following problems have been solved:
    - The combobox item texts in the sitemonitor screen.
      In the past one line showed (dB)(dBm)(dBm)
    - Profile selection list of taskbaricon menu.
      When a "empty" profile is created in the Add/Edit profile dialog
      the current profile was not indicated correctly.
    - "sticking" modem speed in status screen.
      After changing from a Residential gateway profile with modem
      connection active, the modem speed text was not removed from the
      status screen.
    - Missing station name(s) in linktest selection screen when in peer
      to peer mode.
    - After uninstall some files would stay behind (modem.txt, aplist.txt
      and .gid file)

3.1 Version 1.58              Winter 2001

    The following functionality has been added:
    - Starting the Client Manager while it is already active (but as
      icon on the system tray only) will bring up the Client Manager
      status screen.
    - The Client Manager grays out the Link Test function if the
      station is connected to a non-Lucent AP that does not support
      the LinkTest protocol.
    - The Client Manager provides functions to Disable and Enable the
      Card's Radio. This is intended for use with the Embedded Card
      (miniPCI), to be able to switch off the radio for instance
      before entering an aircraft, but also works on the PC Card. This
      status is preserved over a system reboot / power off-on cycle.
    - The Client Manager shows different icons for the access point
      in the Status screen, depending on the type of access point:
      a Lucent AP, RG, or other (unknown) access point.

    The following problems have been solved:
    - Changing the configuration profile using the combo box.
      In previuos versions this did not always produce the wanted
    - Update of the Access Point name.
      After a configuration profile change or going out of range
      of the AP and coming back into range the Access Point name
      was not always updated.
    - Modem Tray Icon (only when connected to an RG-1000).
      In some cases (e.g. during transmission of a large file)
      the icon would show an error for the RG's phone connection
      while the connection was still functioning correctly.
    - RG Modem menu item (only when connected to an RG-1000).
      Sometimes this menu item would disappear after going to 
      Add/Edit Configuration profile and then cancel the editting.
    - Log directory
      Default log directory has been changed to a subdirectory ("log")
      of the directory where the Client Manager is installed.
    - Encryption warning after card removal.
      After a card removal an encryption warning was displayed.
    - Client Manager un-install did not remove shortcut.
    - Client Manager installation sometimes incorrectly displayed
      a message that the Driver is not yet installed.
    - Under Windows 2000 the Client Manager icon was transparent
      if the user was not logged in with Administrator rights.
    - The Client Manager no longer gives a blinking icon warning
      (that the encryption key may be wrong) if the station is
      connected to a non-Lucent AP. Now there will be a warning
      given on the Card Diagnostics screen only.

3.2 Version 1.18                June 2000

This is the first version of the Client Manager.
    It replaces the previous WaveMANAGER/CLIENT and the
    Comms Quality Indicator (CQI). Compared to those, following
    has been changed:
        The user interface has been improved. WaveMANAGER/CLIENT
          and CQI have been integrated.
        New, clearer, icons are used to indicate the
          communications quality.
        In case the station is connected to an RG, also status
          information about the RG's dial-up connection is given.
        New icon menu item:
          Change configuration profile (immediately).
        In case the station is connected to an RG, a function
          is added to establish or disconnect the RG's dial-up
        Function screens have been reworded and rearranged.

6.1 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.

6.2 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.
