Netwave Airsurfer Pro Wireless LAN PC card (for laptop). Has sticker on the 
box "IEEE 802.11 compliant" and yes, I have the box and manual. No software 
of any kind. Seems to be a direct sequence card.

Model number is 1100-6001, software version 3.0 (but again, I have no 

Per manual, it uses the IEEE 802.11 DSSS service, which is channels 1-11 in 
the US, 1-13 in Europe, etc. Looks like it supports infrastructure mode, 
and ad-hoc mode.

Installation/setup instructions are for WinNT 4 workstation, and Win95. 
Looks like it uses Card and socket services.

I also have an access point for it, with wall-wart. I think that's the 
right wall-wart. The AP has connections for 10BaseT and thinnet. Yes, 
really. No manual or box for the AP.
