    I've been all around the Cisco website and all I can find is a load of
    references to access points, which look nothing like this product.

    I am simply after the software which one installs on a laptop running
    XP, to get this adaptor working for accessing wifi access points.

    Maybe I bought the wrong part?

    Many thanks for any pointers...

    You have definitely got the wrong part if you are trying to put that
    card in you PC.

    That part is a radio module that goes inside a Cisco 1200 access point.

    The newer Cisco Aironet PC adapter part numbers for North America are:

    CB20A 802.11a Card bus adapter AIR-CB20A-A-K9

    CB21AG 802.11a/b/g Card bus adapter AIR-CB21AG-A-K9

    PI21AG 802.11a/b/g PCI adapter AIR-PI21AG-A-K9

    If you were looking for a PCI card for your PC, then a PI21AG is
    probably what you want.

    You find the Windows driver software for these adapters at:

    Thanks Merv - I too have realised that this card is good for an access
    point only.

    I have the PCMCIA versions of these which work great; I need some
    mini-PCI ones.

    I've since found some mini-PCI Cisco 350 adaptors on Ebay

    and these appear to use exactly the same software as the PCMCIA ones.
    The project these are for is:
