Where are you located?

Does WZC see the card? If yes, does it allow you to enter a 128 bit key?

:eek: sorry about that. As you can see, my typing has improved :D. I was on my brother's laptop (pcmcia card slot), his keyboard is damaged, some keys need to be pushed harder, etc, and using laptops is really uncomfortable.

Will fix it up now.

I'm located in the UK and Windows can connect to my wireless connection (although it uses Wep64). My connections doesn't have 128 wep so I can't tell whether the card will support it.

Do you realise that the ONLY difference between the Silver and the Gold cards is that Silver does WEP64 only, while the Gold does both WEP64 and WEP128? If you don't have a connection using WEP128, then upgrading the card is rather useless.

yeah i know, is there a way to check though? When I try to upgrade the firmware, it doesn't detect the card, and the orinoco client manager doesn't either.

You may need to get a different version of the ORiNOCO CM.

Appearently the attempt to upgrade your ORiNOCO card's firmware also broke your shift key. Better fix that first, it might be the reason why the CM won't detect your card. CM's, just like Moderators here, are know to be finicky about using correct capitalization and spelling. Thats why it is in the forum rules, up in the Welcome Desk section. Which you did read, right ?

How do we know we killed the card? I supposed it isn't detected and both LEDs are dead?

Mine is still detected in both WZC and NetStumbler after running alchemy and getting "Error writing new PDA". As mentioned before, WaveLAN Orinoco Silver. I am doing this because if I want my roommate's wireless, I need a 128bit WE encryption... I told him it doesn't give him much more security but as usual, people don't want to hear anything. I can't wait to show him how weak it is :)

By the way I like your humor Dutch :)

There is no user named anybody in these forums...

Okay, anyone can tell me the same thing?

When alchemy'ing my card, should I have the original driver or the WildPackets one would do the job?

Since it isn't really working right now (details mentioned 2 and 10 posts earlier), I thought about reflashing the card to the original firmware but it is telling me I don't have a/the (don't remember exactly) good driver (version) but it still offers me to flash it. Should I? I don't want to bork it more than it is right now...

Yes, go ahead and flash it with either code. That should take care of the issue.

And if your little weiney will fit the antenna connector, go ahead and bork it to your heart's content.
