No in fact I recently installed new drivers and utility that I didn't
have for the broadcom Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI
card on the Compaq and that seems to have cured the problem !
Now I am looking for a way to enable SoftAp mode on this card and I
found that adding a EnableSoftAp "1" string to the registry is
supposed to add Softap capability to the utility but that doesn't
Thanks anyway for you answer
