    Sorry man, I don't think it's ornioco. You got taken. $30 ain't bad though. The real orinoco stuff goes for like $65 and higher.

    it is an orinoco, cause the box is labled Proxim and Orinoco and so is the card itself.

    Yeah, you're right, it's a proxim with orinoco tech. in it. All the Orinoco Gold USB devices I was looking at was Lucent/Agere. They go the extra mile with the PCMCIA cards still. Proxim cheaps out and just integrates. Probably becuase they own orinoco.

    Here's what my Orinoco USB looks like. The little gold connector is the antenna port.
