USB to PCMCIA Cardbus adapter connection information

A lot of people spend time looking for the connection information for their service provider so that they can connect with a manual windows connection to their wireless internet. This is information that is needed when using the USB to 32 bit PCMCIA Cardbus adapters. (It also applies for the USB to 16 bit PCMCIA adapter.)

Fortunately Elan (the chipset manufacturer) has provided this information for us. If your provider is not listed below, i apologize, but you’ll still have to call up the provider to get this information.
