do you have the same problem if you use the same wireless card with the 
same Windows XP driver under Windows XP? If not, please generate and 
send us at support at linuxant.com dump with DriverLoader 2.10 for all 
these 4 PCs. You can generate the dump with the 'dldrconfig --dumpdiag' 
command in a root shell. All these dumps will help us solve the problem.
