It's more complicated, I'm afraid. I use a few different PCMCIA devices.
It's not that some devices are never seen - on contrary, they may work or
not on different computers, sometimes on the same computer and different
systems, and sometimes even on the same system they behave chaotically.

Actually it's 'inherited code', I didn't write it.
Do you think using pcap API would help? I'm not really very familiar with 
it, does it support sending OID commands and this kind of stuff?
