Cisco Wireless terminology

Hi all.

Please could you explain to me the differences between:

ACU

ADU

ACAU.

More I read, and more I get confused.

I understood that:

ADU is for one couple of PCMCIA card as CB21AG & PI21AG.

ACU is for other couple of PCMCIA card as Aironet 350 & CB20A.

Do ADU & ACU also include software drivers?

What is the plus/minus beewen the ACU and ADU?

If they do the same job, why calling in different ways?

What is the meaning of these cards? Now the PCs have built-in wireless...

What about ACAU?

Thanks a lot.

Giorgio.

Re: Cisco Wireless terminology

Hi Scott.

Thanks for your reply.

Reading at the link you provided me, I understood that ACAU is an administration tool for CB21AG & PI21AG PCMCIA cards. So ACAU and ADU software belong to same hardware family.

ACU and ADU should be the drivers, and some minor tools for two different families of hardware.

It is not clear the use of the ACAU... Administering what?

Those tools are pretty old and you might have a hard time finding drivers especially if you are using Windows 7 and or Windows 8.  Last I know, they were supported only on Windows XP.

Thanks,

Scott
