We are looking for a good mini pci (not pcie) card that supports ccx4 (Cisco Compatible Extensions version 4 [added to improve searchability]) and has good client software. Our environment requires use of eap-tls with machine certificates, so ccx4 is required to get cckm to work properly. Has anybody found a good solution for this?
I like the Dell/Broadcom 1370/1470 mini-PCI and they are CCX4. We have many Intel 2100/2200/2915 and constantly have roaming issues with them. In roaming tests using WPA2-AES and PEAP, the Broadcom was the most consistent followed closely by the Cisco CB21 PCMCIA. The Intel firmware tends to "stick" to the AP and thus impacts roaming even with the roaming aggressiveness tuned. Also in a driver only install with XP managing the PEAP connection, Broadcom and Cisco advertises CCX4, while the Intel requires the use of their client for CCX. Our wireless environment is 4404's running 3.2 and 4.0 with 1230 and 1242.
I think the Cisco cards are excellent, but they do not have a mini-pci form factor offering. I tried a MP31G in a Dell XP laptop, but the CB21 driver would not work. We use the XP built-in client with PEAPv0 support for simplicity, and leverage AD to push out the SSID configuration. There are issues with Intel, just search the forum for posts on Intel.
