I’ve got a wifi PCMCIA card (brand: Netvision) that I bought more than a year ago, but have never been used (since Nokia 9500 already got wifi capability). However, last weekend I needed a fast Internet connection on my laptop when I was on Menara Peninsula hotel. Noticing that I was in a hotspot zone, finally I got to use this. The card’s FCC ID is PQP-WP288P.
I realized that I forgot to brought the driver with me, and the laptop has been reinstalled without that driver. Then I found out that the driver for this bloody card is almost impossible to find 🙂
There are also several drivers available from DriverGuide.com, however none worked for me – the one from SMC just plain doesn’t work (seems like it detected that this Am1772-based wifi card is not an SMC brand), and the generic driver also doesn’t work at all.
But of course, your mileage may vary.
So after the driver was downloaded & installed, then I was able to access the Internet with speed of 1 Mbps. Kudos to Menara Peninsula hotel.
