Best Driver for SMC2642W

Postby sHARD>. » Sun Dec 12, 2004 3:24 pm

Alright, so after using the search function (yay!) I discovered a few Mobile 2003 drivers that work better with the SMC 2642W than the one that SMC provides. So I am currently using the ASUS version. However I have seen rumblings about some other drivers (including the pulled Prism driver and the one from senao). So which do people think is the best one to use? As I said, the ASUS driver works pretty well. But is it the best?

Thanks,

You probably found my posting on this from last spring:

I'm still using the Asus driver and pretty much happy with it. I'm still frustrated by the lack of a working connection manager, however. I would like to have the SMC original PPC2002 connection manager utility along with the ASUS driver!

I'm always on the lookout for something newer/better, but I haven't found any. I will definitely post if I find something though. Hopefully you and others will too.

Actually, I got tired of waiting around, so I made my own driver. It uses the newest PRISMNDS.DLL I could get my hands on, and you can still have the connection manager (newer version of that too), although it doesn't really work for many things because Wireless Zero Configuration takes over.
