* Operators Not Listed :
Most cards are badged (labeled) by an operator. The list above is not a comprehensive list of all operators supplying supported cards; if you have one of the listed wireless card models but have purchased it from a different operator, it should work without problem in the U132. [Re-branded cards usually state the manufacturer's name and model number on the reverse label.]

** Sprint S620 Wireless PC Card in U132 Adapter:
The Sprint network requires each wireless PC card to be configured before it can connect to the network. Normally the Connection Manager software automatically carries out this configuration process, but because the Connection Manager software does not recognize the Merlin S620 card in the U132 adapter it cannot be done in this way.

This means that a brand new S620 card will not be able to connect to the Sprint network via the U132 adapter. In some cases, the whole system will crash waiting for the card to make a connection to the network.

To use the S620 card in this U132 adapter, you must first either configure it yourself (using the Connection Manager software in another computer which has a PCMCIA CardBus slot to take the S620 card) or ask your Sprint dealer to do it for you. If you have been previously using your S620 card in another computer, it's already configured and you don't have to worry about this step.
